10 Reasons Why You Should Join The League of Education Podcasters, Bloggers, and Content Creators

I’m excited to announce the creation of a new Facebook Group called the League of Education Podcasters, Bloggers, and Content Creators. If you have an education blog, podcast, or love creating and sharing education content; this will be a community where you can connect with like-minded people. Whether you are thinking of delving into education content creation or you are a veteran, I’m hopeful that this will be a community that has something to offer everyone. Just click on the link and request to join. Or, if you are still considering it, here are 10 reasons why you should consider joining today.

  2. You are tired of always feeling like you are reinventing the wheel, and would like a community to help you out.
  3. You would appreciate people who could serve as a sounding board for your ideas or experiments.
  4. You are looking for people who can help promote one another’s content.
  5. You want to start a blog or podcast, but could use some sage advice so as to avoid common rookie mistakes.

  7. You’ve been blogging and podcasting for quite some time, but you are not getting the results that you want.

  9. You want to get better at what you do.
  10. You want to experience the excitement of joining an new online community and helping turn it into a thriving community of practice for current and future education podcasters, bloggers, and content creators.

Join The Summer Teacher Challenge Today

I’m excited to announce a new experiment (expect more of these from me over the next year) called the Lazy Summer Teacher Scavenger Hunt. The premise is simple. Go about your summer and capture “Summer Teachers” in action based upon a list of different options. For each picture that you capture and submit, you earn points. There are some prizes for people who like that sort of thing, but this is also an invitation to join in painting a collective picture of what lifelong learning teachers do with their summers. These are teachers enjoying the beach, a little R&R, but they are also deeply engaged in refining their skills and living our their calling as both teacher and learner during the summer. To join the challenge or learn more, check out the description/announcement at the Lazy Summer Teacher Scavenger Hunt web site. The event runs from Jun 6 through September 6 and all are welcome to participate. You don’t need to be a teacher, just someone interested in collecting evidence of summer teacher activities and submitting that evidence on the site.
