I wonder how many educators are on here.

There were thriving communities of educators on Tumblr and Twitter, but Tumblr's went to heck after moderated hashtags went away and Twitter is ... Twitter.

The fediverse has Scholar.social, but that's more of an instance for college/university level academics. I'd like to connect with other K-12 educators.


@crash I'm a teacher in Sweden. The kids are usually between 11 and 15 but can be older if they've had to redo a year. Not sure how that compares to the US system 🤷‍♀️ . This is very much a personal account though and not so much a work account. I've seen some teachers from time to time but nothing organised.

@habmala @crash

It took a fairly long time for teachers (K-12) to link up using Twitter. I worked several conferences to promote teachers to get accounts...pulling teeth some times.

The federated space is even more confusing, I suspect.

I think "we" need to get some well known education voices into the federated space to attract the general teacher population.

Since I'm retired, the "we" is significant.

@Algot @habmala Every now and then I consider making an instance for pre-college educators on here, but then I realize I'd have to admin it.

And I remember how much I disliked being a department chair.

Skrivel.se is a bit of a play on words lost in translation. Hosted by two nerds from sweden but most posts are in english on here. We're a small instance with an active federated timeline. We'd love to have you on, but you should expect us to say hi, and to ask who you are 😉 The server is very active, but small.
