A Community designed for you

Learn from each other and share ideas.
 

The content on this site is similar to a blog but with the advantage of having your target audience already there. Here are some examples of topics you may like to share and discuss:
 

  • Your thoughts on using technology for international learning

  • Local regional festivals and events

  • Food/healthy eating in your area (or school lunches)

  • Environmental issues

  • Professional Development

  • Equal opportunities for women

  • Equal opportunities for LGBT

  • Should technology be used in the classroom?

  • Latest developments with the international curriculum e.g. IGCSE, IB

  • Lifestyle – keeping healthy generally, women's health, family health

  • Moving abroad with a family

  • All the secrets to social success in your area

  • Lesson plans you have found particularly useful or that work well


These are just ideas of things you could share – simply use the ‘Share’ button to send in your story so we can share it with other members. Once it is posted, you can then easily share yours and other posts on your social media sites including LinkedIn and Facebook. Your posts will link to your Community profile so other members can respond to you directly or comment on the post itself.


Groups to discuss specific topics and share ideas

Check out our Groups pages. They are ‘private’ areas of the site that are there for you to discuss specific topic areas, or areas that you work in. Do you think there’s a Group missing? Let us know so that it can be considered. 


Free advertising of job posts and events within international schools

Branch out with your advertisement and use this site to post your school's latest job openings and events. Simply click on the tab and hit the green ‘Share’ button and your event or advert will be added within two working days.

 

Other Resources

We can post links to articles you have seen online, presentations you have given and more – just send the information to us so we can share it with others. If the content is not yours then let us know if you have permission to share it, or we can look into this for you.

 

What are you waiting for? This is your community to connect, learn and share with like-minded educators all over the world. If you find it interesting then perhaps someone else will too.
 

Comment below or direct message me if you have any queries.

Connie, Community Manager
