TeachersFirst's Educator Advisory Board

The TeachersFirst Educator Advisory Board provides feedback and guidance to the TeachersFirst professional staff regarding the needs and interests of classroom teachers, especially those who seek to use technology to support teaching and learning. The Board members span all grades, from kindergarten to collegiate teacher-ed programs, with representation across multiple subject areas, teaching levels, and geographic locations. The board meets a few times a year in a virtual environment to share ideas and collaborate. The group includes educational technology leaders at the local, regional, and national levels, as well as several authors of education and technology books.
