Introducing the New TeacherTube Blog!

August 20th, 2013 | by TeacherTube

TeacherTube Official Blog

We began TeacherTube in 2007 with the goal of providing an online community for sharing instructional videos. As our community grows, we look for new and innovative ways to continue to fill a need for a more educationally focused, safe venue for teachers, schools, and home learners…to provide anytime, anywhere professional development with teachers teaching teachers. In an effort to foster this community of outstanding educators, we’re thrilled to announce a new addition to the site: the TeacherTube blog!

Our blog will expand upon the resources that our members share with each other on a daily basis. It will help us continue our mission of empowering teachers to teach teachers, and offer a new forum for members to discuss, develop, and discover with one another. We’ll offer original content across a range of topics, such as professional development, education news, technology, and great resources that every teacher should be aware of. We also plan on featuring a weekly roundup of the week’s most popular TeacherTube uploads!

We’ve worked with a lot of people, including the good people over at Teach.com, to get started on our blog. However, the most important part of the blog (as with every other resource on the site) is you: our members. Remember, TeacherTube community members are a major part of the evolution of the site, and we’d like to invite you all to become active participants in the blog. Blogging is an incredibly powerful tool for educators, as it not only offers you a voice on the web, but also connects you with other voices in the educational space. Many of you already blog on your own, and for those who don’t, we highly encourage you to explore the possibility.

Our hope is to make the blog as representative of our community as the rest of the site, so we are actively seeking TeacherTube members to contribute. If you’re interested in writing for the blog, don’t hesitate to let us know! Similarly, if you already have your own blog, we’ll be happy to share already published pieces that you’d like to see republished on the TeacherTube blog. Members can write about whatever inspires them: professional development, education policy, specific subject areas. You can share lesson plans, review resources, and even write pieces that compliment videos you’ve uploaded.

To write for us, please email blog@teachertube.com with the post you want to submit, or to pitch us an idea. TeacherTube staff will review all posts, and you can expect your blog to go live within one to three weeks from the date of your submission. If you aren’t interested in writing, we still encourage you to comment and offer constructive feedback. This blog is your resource, and we want to hear from you about how we can make it the best it can be. The direction the blog takes will be guided by your input, participation, and most importantly, your voices. We firmly believe in the potential this blog has to strengthen the TeacherTube community and become a powerful tool for our members to develop as educators. Help us make this the blog that will be most useful to you.
