Education is a social experience. And connections lead to innovation.
– Zach Bost Principal, Central Elementary, Lucedale, MS Edmentum Educator Network Member
Going beyond a PLN
Educators' work is so fulfilling, but the day-to-day realities can be tough. The Network connects you with other educators who are living the same triumphs and struggles. Through in-person and virtual events, you will meet peers cloes to home or far away who just get it. Our community is more than a personal learning network—it's a sounding board, a think-tank, a therapy outlet, and a group of friends. By joining the Network, you can find your people, no matter what your role in education.
Fostering Educator Leadership at All Levels
Nothing quite beats a shared experience with a small group of peers. That's why biannual in-person Educator Summit events are a critcal piece of the Edmentum Educator Network. Think of the Summits as a retreat with 15-20 of your future education BFFs. These events are for you, and we let you set the direction. They're a big commitment, which is why they are application-based, but they come with big and lasting benefits. You become part of a year-long cohort, and the Network will facilitate follow-ups, site-visits, collaboration opportunities, and workshopping with Edmentum teams for the group. An all-expenses paid conference, and a new group of go-to colleagues to lean on—what educator couldn't use that?
Infusing Educator Voice in Education Technology
You and your students are the daily users of classroom technology, so you should have an important hand determining what it is, what it does, and how it's designed. At Edmentum, we know that real educator input, feedback, and help is critical to make sure our programs truly work for you. With our Network workshops, we want to take that approach a step further by providng opportunities for you to work directly with Edmentum teams and contribute to the creation of Edmentum program content—credit and compensation included.
