a place to weave, unravel, and re-weave PYP threads into fabrics of communication with a choice of threads, colors, patterns, and textures
A list of PYP Threads Members' blogs, wikis, web pages can be found at this link.
Here's a guide to the links at the top of this page:
There are several tabs at the top of this page linking to IB resources: "Sharing PYP practice". Clicking there will take you to a blog from the IB PYP office intended for "Sharing examples of what PYP implementation looks like in IB World schools" Visit this new initiative from the PYP, leave a comment, and subscribe to the RSS feed. The "Primary Years Program" tab takes you to a blog from the IB PYP Development team; and the "IBO in Practice" tab takes you to online issues of a newsletter from the IB for educators. The "IB Global Engage" tab opens an IB webpage "which supports members of the IB community, and particularly teachers, in engaging with our global world."
When you click the Photos tab, you'll go to the Photos page for this ning. Hover your mouse over the Photos tab, and you'll see a link to a group on Flickr called "Illustrating the PYP". You're invited to join the group there, and post your photos.There's also a link to the Visible Thinking Group on Flickr, and to the Librarian Edge page on Flickr.
Hover your mouse over the Nings tab; you'll see links to other nings of interest to PYP people: the PYP Group on the Flat Classrooms ning, (started by Leigh Newton), Library 2.0, and Teacher Librarian, Talkabout Primary Languages (which is now a wiki, not a ning), Art Education 2.0, K12 Online Conference, and Classroom 2.0 (a huge education ning, with more than 50,000 members, and 660 Groups!)

The PYP Threads Daily tab is visible to members only. When you click on the tab, a new web page will open, and you'll see a newspaper-style page which organizes links shared on Twitter by PYP Threads members into an easy to read newspaper-style format.

You can see the full page at Twitter.
