Team Teachers Tour: Page Links
You may have noticed some links at the top of the Team Teachers blog (they’re dark right now because our theme knows it’s nighttime on the East Coast). These links exist to give you quick access to resources we’re developing for you. Here’s a breakdown:
Here’s a quick introduction to the education community for those of you new to Tumblr. In the future this will contain a “Quick Start Guide” that you can share with your colleagues so they can set themselves up on Tumblr. At the moment, it specifically deals with the Tumblr Teacher Roll Call, and the Education tag. Speaking of which…
This is the one of the central locations for educators on Tumblr. Any post tagged “Education” will appear here. This is one of the few tracked tags on Tumblr, and one of the Top 30 tags on Tumblr overall. It is curated by a set of editors from the Education community.
Future community-driven projects and free online resources will be linked to here. Two of the most successful projects are currently currently listed on this page. They include the Tumblr Teacher Roll Call (linked above) and a List of Interview Questions for those of you who are job-hunting.
We feel strongly that tags will have a huge impact on your ability to find content from other Tumblr bloggers that matches your grade level, discipline, or interest. This page currently lists the most popular education tags on Tumblr. In the future, we’ll be working with all of you to develop new tags for each discipline and grade level. Have a suggestion for an education tag? Submit it here.
Teacher Dare Day is the brainchild of positivelypersistentteach, and is essentially the Tumblr education community’s version of an #edchat on Twitter. It’s a great way to interact with other educators on Tumblr. The rules are simple, and can be found here. Remember: If you are participating in a Teacher Dare Day, tag your posts “Teacher Dare Day.”
There will certainly be more to come, but this is a great start.
