I recently came across WeAreTeachers.com, an online community for educators, and liked it so much that I am recommending it to you!! I encourage you to take a few minutes over the winter break and explore it for yourself! This is an online community for teachers where they are encouraged to connect and share innovative teaching ideas.
The community rewards great ideas by letting members apply for an Idea Grant sponsored by one of their business partners from leading education companies. You submit your idea, and you could win some great prizes. This has lead to 1o,000 + ideas shared on the site ranging in all subjects and age groups from Health & Wellness to Science to Technology.
Here is an example of a recent winning idea. This teacher is a grant winner for her idea on how to use technology in the classroom. She had her students research an alternative energy of their choice and try to persuade others why that it is a better form of energy than what is currently being used.
