In Stage 1, you shared that it can be challenging finding videos that not only fit into your schedule, but also match the subject, grade level, or practice you’re looking for.
Accessibility is the biggest challenge for so many teachers. If I have to wait to find the right website, chances are I will give up. But teachers are on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest all the time! Why not partner with these social media outlets to create communities for teachers? This could make teaching videos easily accessible in the places that teachers are already looking. Through hashtags, groups, and boards, we can develop communities for teachers that doesn't involve toggling over to other pages. We could work to get sponsorship from Facebook to "advertise" the groups so teachers are likely to see it in their newsfeeds and join.
This could have dramatic impact. So often there is incredible amount of work that is put into teaching projects that are unfortunately underutilized after the work is complete. However, by using social media platforms that have a world-wide audience, we can get the message out.
I could see this happening at a grassroots level, or by leveraging connections within the organizations like Facebook and Twitter, seeing if we can create mutually beneficial partnerships. Mark Zuckerberg has already proven to care about investing in education, why not investing in this?
