Social media in the 21st century has allowed educators to connect better than those in previous years. It is important to note this according to Tom Whitby ” Such collaboration forces transparency. Pedagogy, methodology and policy are all topics of discussion amongst educators worldwide. Education is being analyzed and scrutinized under a huge magnifying glass with the results, blemishes and all, being shared globally.”
There is beauty in the collaborations of different educators across the country, but one of the biggest critiques is are leaders being recognized for what they do in their communities? Educators need to stand out not only in their communities, but specially with the students. If they are not relevant to the student they are teaching. Educators and administrators need to become united now more than ever in order to reform our own culture and the education system overall.
