Are you currently an Ontario Faculty of Education student?
Soon you will be graduating, getting ready to apply your new skills. Our profession will do well with the new ideas and fresh outlook you will provide.
As educators ourselves, we all started out where you are now. Over the last several months you’ve worked hard. You’ve now gained a better understanding of curriculum, teaching strategies, learning styles, polices and the profession as a whole.
However, let’s not forget the one thing you’ve done all year: networked.
We know all too well the importance of establishing effective networks.
While at the Faculty you have met many professionals from the field: instructors, school administrators, numerous teachers and of course, your fellow teacher candidates.
Here’s the problem:
Once you graduate, you may no longer have contact with the connections made while at your Faculty. In fact, you may no longer have access to your faculty email once you graduate. You do not want to lose the connections you have made. Continuing with that network is paramount.
Here’s the solution:
Register with Cube for Teachers – it’s free!
Cube for Teachers is a FREE educational collaborative bookmarking community created exclusively for Ontario teachers. Here, teachers can share, search and store educational web links from around the world and tie them to Ontario curriculum. As well, Cube for Teachers provides teachers with a platform to form their own personal groups (PLN’s) to foster ongoing discussions, support, network, etc.
Over the last few months, there has been an explosion of teacher candidates registering in The Cube. Candidates are forming networks while still at the Faculty and will continue to expand those networks once they graduate. Click here to read more about Cube Groups.
Here’s the important piece:
To join, you must register while you still have access to your faculty email. This email is only required to register and you may change your email once registered.
If you wait and no longer have your faculty email, you will not gain access until you have secured employment with an Ontario K-12 educational institution.
Don’t get left behind. Register today and start collaborating with teachers throughout Ontario!
