Building A Teacher Community For STEM Educators

Published

"Educators need a safe space where they can support each other, learn from one another, and spark creative ideas to keep students engaged during this time." - Naomi Harm

I work with K-12 educators across the globe as a STEM Innovation Specialist – from this work, I know how overwhelming it is to be a teacher right now, regardless of where you are located physically.
About 65% of the educators I work with have never taught online before, and they are working so hard to learn new technologies to help meet the needs of their students. However, a simple Google search can quickly turn into hours down a rabbit hole, sifting through endless information, not knowing where to start.
This is just one example of why teacher communities are more important now than ever before. Educators need a safe space where they can support each other, learn from one another, and spark creative ideas to keep students engaged during this time.

Why teacher communities matter
Online teacher communities offer a platform for educators to connect and discuss any topics related to education. They can be found on social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook – some even exist as standalone websites. Educators use these spaces to discuss lesson plans, hybrid learning tactics, and as a general place to support one another.
