The P-16 Clearinghouse for Evidence-Based Practices was created to provide an unbiased source for disseminating and supporting the use of research-based practices on learning and school reform. One of the key features of this reform strategy will be opportunities for P-16 education to learn, understand, and reflect on these research-based practices. The smartDESKTOP is the product of the Indiana Humanities Council to bring to K-12 teachers a web-based suite of tools to help them be more efficient and effective as professionals. The smartDESKTOP is becoming a hub for the professional activity of teachers in the state and a point of connection between schools and many content providers.To provide educators with a more comprehensive understanding of research-based practices across the state, CELL and IHC have come together to develop a strategy that blends the expertise of both groups. This session will chronicle the collaboration to disseminate information through the Desktop.
