Have you been overwhelmed by the sheer number of resources on Teach the Earth? Have you wished for more guidance on how to navigate the Teach the Earth Portal? Would you like to contribute to the community of practice represented by Teach the Earth? Teach the Earth is designed to be the web portal to all things Earth education ( But, with thousands of professional development opportunities, modules, and ready-made activities, engaging with the web resources can be daunting and it may seem difficult to get involved. NAGT's Teach the Earth website committee is interested in better understanding how we can serve the needs of the Earth Education community and wants to hear from you. This presentation is designed to provide the community with tips for navigating Teach the Earth based on our current understanding of the collection. We highlight the many entry points to Teach the Earth, the variety of resources available and a range of opportunities to engage with an active community of practice, wherever you are. Emphasizing the adaptable navigation, we help you effectively explore and discover a variety of peer-reviewed activities. We also provide encouragement to get involved by focusing on ways that you can contribute activities that are designed to receive exemplary reviews.
