She lists and explains 8 possible ways to get to this point:

2. More efficient and effective team meetings and planning.
3. Collaborate on important documents like school comprehensive education plans.
4. Enhance school professional development using a wiki.
5. Share and collaborate on curriculum maps.
6. Save trees /save time and unclutterize your room or office by posting school resources
7. Know where everyone is when schedules/programs are posted.
8. A portal for all your lessons.
