Hopefully you’ve noticed that The Big Brain Club has an all-new website, packed with a wide variety of features for students, parents, and educators. Our Student Publishing Program continues to be a big hit, and we’re branching out into new areas of funding and resource development, too.
Here’s where you come in: we are actively looking for original content from teachers and other education professionals. This is a great opportunity to share your ideas and experiences with The Big Brain Club community!
What We’re Looking For
- Articles or essays (dealing with all things related to education and youth development) to be featured on our blog. Here’s one example: a middle school teacher explains why computer programming is an important (and under-represented) skill for today’s students.
- Successful projects, activities, or lesson plans that other teachers can implement. Help other teachers get their students involved!
- Event correspondent pieces. Share your impressions of a particular conference, event, etc. Here’s a blog entry written by a teacher who attended the prestigious Google Teacher Academy. Here’s another, from the STEM Educator Symposium.
- Valuable resources, big or small. The next time you read an interesting article, watch a powerful video, or see a clever education meme on Facebook, pass it along.
- Good news about students. Put simply, we want to shine a spotlight on the kids that are working hard and doing cool things. Whether one of your students wins an award or competition, or you know about a group project worth championing, we want to broadcast it to other Big Brain Clubbers.
What You Get Out of It
- An outlet for your ideas. Ever feel like the world of education would be better if you were in charge? Here’s your chance to get those ideas out in the open.
- A network of teachers and students who can benefit from the work you’re doing. Pay it forward — you’ll be surprised how many teachers from all over the country will take your project ideas and run with them.
- New followers for your own blog, website, or social media — if that’s what you want. We happily credit everyone who wants us to do so, and we’re happy to link back to your site or Twitter account . . . unless you want to remain anonymous, in which case we won’t. Either way, it can’t hurt to have ‘Big Brain Club Contributor’ on your resume.
Everywhere we go, people are excited about the Big Brain Club’s growing platform. Educators like the idea of a place where they can share ideas and highlight students.
Now it’s up to you to take the next step. Contact us here with any ideas or submissions. We can’t wait to hear from you!
