National Geographic is excited to announce the official launch of its brand new community for educators, The Geo-Educator Community. The Geo-Educator Community provides a space for geo-educators to share resources, collaborate on projects, learn from each other and give support.
National Geographic defines a geo-educator as an educator working to improve young people’s understanding of the world.
Geo-educators can join the community through a variety of online platforms including Twitter, Facebook, and the secure educator site, Edmodo. The community has been live for over three months and already hosts vibrant discussion ranging from how geo-educators are getting students outside, involved in community service projects, and connected to classrooms around the world. Geo-educators are also engaged in serious discussion on how to successfully implement geo-education across the country and around the world.
To join the community visit geo-education.org and proclaim yourself a #geoeducator.
