The EdTech Google+ community is a place where educators, technologists, students, researchers, connoisseurs and enthusiasts can discuss the multifaceted role of technology in education. As an industry leading resource for EdTech related communications, technologies, practices, research and methodology, we hope this space is a collaborative and open resource for the world to share their stories, research and findings in educational technology.
As of late, the community has sustained significant growth, and is expected to continue. For that reason, we aim to revitalize the submission process to encourage a more easily navigated and rewarding experience for users. Ultimately, your posts and submissions should help contribute to the intellectual growth of this community which represents a larger movement. We have carefully researched what makes a community succeed, what makes them thrive, and what makes them fail. We want you to see this community as a place where you can grow, converse, question and laugh about things that matter to you and ideas that will move our world forward.
We've put together an Open Community Constitution (OCC) to guide you when contributing, posting, sharing and interacting with the community. This OCC is a living document meant to guide you when posting meaningful, purposeful content that contributes to the community.
Expectations of a post:
1. Post must be related to role of technology and how it relates to education, classrooms, pedagogy, instruction and learning.
2. Does not solely promote a product, individual or institution with no benefit to the entire community
3. Post must have relevant introductory text related to the post, link, photo or video
4. Posts and updates should be in the best interests of education technology leadership, research both academic and commercial
5. Above all, make it fun and keep it classy.
