Welcome to the Agora, the virtual heart of Iowa's educator communities. Sponsored by AEA PD Online, it is the home for different partners both in-state and nationally.

In ancient Greece, the Agora was the central marketplace for the communities for discussions and sharing. Just like the Greeks, we have an Agora for our communities as well. Those communities are listed below. 

If this is your first visit to the Agora, you will want to start with the orientation, listed below. It will overview how to navigate the site, contribute content, and give an introduction to the concept of communities of practice.
