EdSpace: The Social Learning Network. Any time a teacher is in need of support, advice, or new ideas, they have access to a global community, on-demand. EdSpace transforms the way we engage with podcasts, books, blogs, and each other.
Powered by serendipity, EdSpace isn’t about forming closed groups, building a following, or having structured interactions. On EdSpace, there are no followers, no likes, no invites, no retweets, no groups, no influencers, no view counts, and no promotions — just dedicated educators learning, laughing, and supporting one another.
Here’s how it works:
The LiveGuide is your homebase on EdSpace. When you sign up, we get you started with a few channels, some only visible by people at your school, and others that everyone on EdSpace can engage.
From there, browse Guides, adding Channels (think hashtags) that interest you to your LiveGuide. Because your LiveGuide is fully customizable, you can add, rearrange, or remove Channels at any time.
On Channels, you’ll find video Posts, limited to 3 minutes, that delete in 72 hours. Why? Because these posts support conversations, and teachers don’t have time to join a conversation from two years ago. But don’t worry, Posts can be saved or shared to Twitter.
EdSpace uses three formats for sharing ideas and co-creating learning. First, is EdSpace TV. Every teacher who signs up gets their own Channel. It can be used for reflection, idea sharing, or not at all.
Second, is the Idea Exchange guides. Ever listened to a podcast and wished you could ask a question, share a thought, or meet the guest? This will be the place to do just that. We’ll have hundreds of channels supporting conversations from podcasters, authors, bloggers, and keynote speakers.
Third, is Ask a Teacher. From new teacher support to veterans looking for help with technology, Ask a Teacher is the place to get real advice from real teachers.
Here are the key features of EdSpace:
Noise Control: Using filters on each channel, YOU decide which posts you see based on what you’re looking to do. Need an idea from an author, with 50k Twitter followers? Simply apply those filters and only posts that apply will appear. Or looking for advice from someone just like you, in your district? Again, apply and engage.
LiveGuide: personal and customizable list of Channels (i.e., your homebase), where you can add or remove Channels whenever you want
Video Posts: short (less than 3 minutes) and temporary (deleted 72 hours after last interaction), Video Posts serve as conversation catalysts, driving connection on EdSpace
Channels: topic-specific, interest-based home for Posts; most Channels are public, but private Channels give access to only certain people (like colleagues at your school or organization)
Guides: groups of Channels curated by organizations and/or centered around particular topics or formats (e.g., EdSpace TV, Idea Exchange, Ask a Teacher)
Alerts: push notifications for people you designate, when they post or go live
Post-it Board: a text-based way to ask questions on a Channel
Leveraging short video posts, EdSpace makes it easy for educators to ask questions, get answers, share learnings, test ideas, and build relationships that celebrate their unique interests, expertise, and superpowers.
