What is educator support and development?

Educator support and development encompasses a range of tools and services that helps teachers become better and more effective in their work. This includes activities such as professional development, training, mentoring and coaching, peer-to-peer learning, as well as other support services. These organizations’ programs are designed to help teachers gain new skills, stay up to date with changes in the field, and remain competitive in the job market.

On Tech Jobs for Good, we also include organizations that help teachers purchase classroom supplies, organizations that make it easier for educators to purchase a home or save for retirement, and organizations that advocate for teacher rights and pay, such as teacher unions.

Why is supporting educators in the United States important?

Supporting educators in the United States is important because teachers are responsible for connecting students with learning opportunities and providing a safe and engaging learning environment. Educators provide the leadership, guidance, and instruction needed to prepare students for success in the future. In the United States, many teachers are underpaid, overworked, and don’t have access to the resources they need for their classroom or to support their livelihood.

By providing support and development opportunities to teachers, we can help educators stay informed about the latest changes in the field and keep up with the demands of an ever-changing classroom. Investing in educators can help create positive school climates, reduce teacher turnover, and create a society where teaching is a sustainable career option.

How is technology playing a role in educator support and development?

Technology is playing an increasingly important role in educator support and development. It is making it easier for teachers to access information and educational materials, to collaborate with colleagues and mentors, and to access professional development opportunities. Technology can also be used to facilitate communication between teachers and administrators and to help teachers track and measure progress. New educational technologies, such as distance learning platforms and virtual classrooms, are also making it easier for teachers to reach more students.
