teacher communities

4 terrific teacher communities for summer PD

These teacher communities are perfect to share lesson plans, ask questions, and connect with other inspiring educators.

Teaching Channel

A community of classroom-teaching videos, this website provides teachers with an opportunity to learn from peers. Educators can share lesson ideas and find support in an active Q&A forum. Rather than take time away from the school day to observe other teachers in action, this innovative online tool allows educators to observe actual classroom teaching anytime. The Teams platform offers a more personalized version of the public model and enables individual schools to share videos within a small group setting.


Twitter is an incredible resource for professional development. Although not focused primarily on teachers or education, Twitter makes it easy for educators to build and expand their personal learning networks. Education-focused chats are a great way to engage; they’re searchable by hashtags such as #edchat, #ellchat, and #sschat. By following other teachers and thought leaders, it’s easy to find new resources and support among peers.
