PLTW Network Resources 
The resources listed below will help you plan and supplement your implementation of the PLTW curriculum where you find gaps in the content that is distance-ready. More resources will be added to this list as they are identified and created.

Many Master Teachers from across the PLTW network have been creating and adding resources to myPLTW Community to help you continue honing your approach to distance learning. As more resources are developed, they also will be added. In myPLTW Community you will find resources such as:

  • Tips from peers
  • How-to videos
  • Recorded "brainstorming" sessions with teachers
  • Supplemental instructional material

Log in to your myPLTW Community group and search PLTW DL, and also PLTW DL MASTER INDEX for high school programs, to see a course-specific link to an evolving list of distance-learning activities and projects for your students. Also, use #PLTWDL in your posts about distance learning to enable others to easily find your content.

Live Zoom Discussions with Master Teachers
Master Teachers are coordinating Zoom meetings to discover and discuss solutions for distance learning needs. 

Check your individual course-specific or program-specific groups in Community in myPLTW for the latest details on these meetings - including topics, times, and registration -  and recordings of those meetings that have already occurred.
