What is Pedagoo?
Pedagoo is a growing community of teachers collaboratively supporting, encouraging and sharing innovative and effective approaches to education. We aim to improve educational outcomes for our young people through positively and professionally sharing our practice.
If you’re involved in education, you’re more than welcome to join our community and share your thoughts and practice. Pedagoo.org has been set up as a collaborative blog allowing teachers to easily share with an established community. Setting up a blog, building an audience and keeping it up to date can be time consuming…so just post here instead! The blog’s all set up and running and we have over 900 registered users and more than 7000 followers on twitter – so you’ve got an audience straight away! Just sign up then write your post!
There are many other ways to share through Pedagoo as well as our collaborative blog…
- If you’re on twitter, check out our hashtag #PedagooFriday. Every week teachers share their highlight of the week from their classrooms with this hashtag. It’s a fantastically positive way to end the week and a great way of sharing ideas. Many#PedagooFriday tweets go on to become posts on Pedagoo.org due to the demand for more information on the idea. Every week someone from the community chooses a selection of these tweets and puts them on the blog.
- A quicker and shorter way of sharing and discussing ideas on Pedagoo.org is through our forums. Once you’re registered on the site you’re free to create new topics or reply to topics which are already running. Our forums also play host to PedagooLocal by providing a space for local groups of pedagooers to come together and plan events in their areas. Have a look to see if your area already has a local community to join in with, and if not get in touch to set one up!
- As well as our locally organised events, we also run occasional larger events. Our events focus on providing a fun opportunity to learn from each other and further develop the community. Keep an eye on our events page for the next one.
If you’re wanting to help promote Pedagoo, you can download logos here or add this twibbon to your twitter picture. Or, you could get even more involved in all things Pedagoo by becoming a Pedaguru or a PedagooAdmin. Find out more about these roles and who is currently involved here.
