Miami, Florida (PRWEB) April 30, 2012
An online survey hosted by TeachAde gathered insight from educators across the nation about their needs, what they are searching for online and support issues they deal with as professionals and in the classroom. TeachAde, awarded a place in the prestigious Technology & Learning listing of Top 100 education websites, conducted this survey during March and April this year to give educators a voice and a place to share their experiences and share their insight with their own community and those who serve them.
Survey results that stood out include:
> Educators’ desire for more online sites that offer free classroom resources such as lesson plans, worksheets, visual aides and hands-on activities
> The perception of a lack of economical and effective professional development choices that fit their schedules
> A need for simple fundraising resources and solutions
> A desire for support for educators approaching and enjoying retirement
> Guidance for safely implementing social media into the education process
The input received directly from educators has proven so valuable, that TeachAde has opened a new survey for educators and invites them to share their experience and insights at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/TeachAde.
