New online social network aims to encourage effective teaching


Site of Week 032410Taking advantage of current social media technology, Teachers Network—with funding from the Ford Foundation—has introduced a new online forum for collaboration on issues affecting educators. The web site aims to bring together educators and policy makers within a national online community to share ideas, suggestions, and best practices for improving teacher effectiveness and retention. The site includes findings from a recent survey conducted by Teachers Network, called “What Keeps Effective Teachers in the Classroom,” suggesting that effective teaching is largely the result of continued professional development, support for teacher collaboration, and opportunities for leadership.http://www.effectiveteachers.org
