Amanda! Where have you been all my life? I loved the features you shared! I teach preservice teachers and use the NSTA Learning Center as our e-Text. I am also extremely familiar with the NSTA Learning Center, both as a professional educator user and as an online advisor; but there are still things I don't know or am not "up" on. Thanks for pointing out the videos that the "help link" features. I had access to video clips that were made using the older learning center format, but I did not know the help link had newer versions. Also, the Common Core Collection that you shared is going to be so helpful when I bring up the topic, "How to integrate Common Core with NGSS" with my science methods classes! So thank you! Please feel free to share other tidbits/gems that help us all navigate this amazing science education resource we call the NLC- NSTA Learning Center. Best, Carolyn

This is a very nice start for those new to the NSTA Learning Center. What a great idea to post how- to videos! Are there more to come? nate

Hi Carolyn and Nate, Thank you for the positive feedback. Yes! There are more to come. Hang on! I am also supporting a group of educators through the NSTA Learning Center while I am here and that prompted the tutorial videos idea! I am constantly amazed at what a rich resource the Learning Center is for science educators! I also love that the community of supportive and collaborative educators taking part in the forums is growing! The next video is about developing Your Professional Learning Plan!
