A Community for Educators Committed to Teaching About Our World

Overview

With the rapid pace of change in the 21st century, it is more important than ever that young people understand the world around them.

However, the focus of current education reform is elsewhere—leaving educators who are committed to teaching young people about their interconnected world out in the cold. National Geographic wants to change all that and is launching the Geo-Education Initiative to improve education about our world. The first step in this initiative is building a Geo-Educator Community for educators who are committed to teaching their students about the world.

The Geo-Educator Community

The Geo-Educator Community will bring together educators and thought-leaders from different disciplines, age groups, and educational settings, who share a commitment to preparing young people to be successful and responsible citizens of an interconnected world.

What is a geo-educator? If you are passionate about helping your students understand our interconnected world, then you are a geo-educator. National Geographic is currently working alongside other geo-educators to create the Geo-Educator Community.

If you have read this and it speaks to the type of teaching and learning you believe will be the best for students, National Geographic invites you to bring your passion and experience to help us build this Geo-Educator Community from the ground up.

How To Join The Community

Geo-educators can join the community through a variety of online platforms. Find out more here.
