A Great Opportunity for Teacher Graduates and Candidates

Are you a recent Faculty of Education graduate or are you graduating in the coming months? Either way, you’re ready for the next step – employment.

The truth is…the landscape is saturated. Graduates seeking employment exceed the number of positions available.  Compounding the problem is the addition of a new cohort of graduates vying for the same teaching positions.

The reality is that it may take a few years to secure a permanent position only after countless hours of volunteering and competing to get onto a supply list.

In today’s market, you need to stand out!

Your Digital Footprint

A digital presence in this profession is increasingly the norm. Every resource and tool you share online, defines your brand as a qualified educator.

A well-established digital footprint relevant to education demonstrates your knowledge, your dedication and your ability to curate credible information. Your digital footprint is your portfolio – it highlights your resourcefulness, your ability to collaborate and your willingness to share knowledge with an established educational network.

Your digital footprint matters. It has become an essential part of today’s teaching profession.

Your digital footprint distinguishes you from other candidates seeking the same permanent positions.

Cube for Teachers

Cube for Teachers is getting graduates noticed. Through the curation of credible links, understanding of pedagogy and the sharing of thoughtful blog content, graduates are defining themselves as a valuable addition to teams.

Cube for Teachers is inviting passionate teacher candidates and graduates to share their knowledge on various resources through Cube for Teachers’ blogs.  In doing so, you’ll be reaching and helping thousands of teachers, administrators and system leaders – providing them valuable resources while getting your name out there.

While you are helping Ontario’s educators learn about valuable web resources, Cube for Teachers is helping you build your digital footprint so you can demonstrate your knowledge to peers, administrators and system leaders.

Blog Content Ideas

  • Write a critical review of a specific curriculum resource;
  • Describe the benefits of a teaching tool and how it can be integrated into a lesson;
  • Write a review of a cluster of resources with a similar theme (i.e. inquiry-based resources);
  • Offer a reflection regarding a particular topic, blog, etc.

Consider a recent post in the Cube for Teachers’ blog.

Are You An Edublogger?

No doubt, blogging has become a popular way for teachers to share ideas as well as build upon their own professional development through reflection, research, and discussions.

If you are an edublogger, how do you share your work? Perhaps you post it on micro-blogging sites a few times in the hope that it gains traction or gets posted on other websites.

Unfortunately, most other websites will simply post a link to the landing page of your blog site. Those who land on your site still need to locate your blog area and sift through past blog posts. To the busy educator in need of support and ideas, searching for specific topics this way is not practical.

Again without a searchable retrieval of your individual blogs, you are dependent upon the marketing from those who have (1) read your blogs (2) shared your blog links and (3) are fairly connected. Another teacher who may benefit from your reflections, unless part of ones network, may never discover your individual blogs.

Cube for Teachers takes on a different approach to foster effective collaboration.

In Cube for Teachers, edubloggers are able to break down their blogs, link by link and attach searchable information that is now at the fingertips of every teacher within The Cube. Teachers within are not dependent upon ones connectedness to others. When an educator searches, they are automatically connected to every link shared inside Cube for Teachers. Thousands of teachers are now part of the Cube for Teachers community. In fact, we are now seeing hundreds of links added every day inside Cube for Teachers as teachers continue to collaborate – why not include yours?

So, how would we recommend you share your fabulous blogs within Cube for Teachers? It’s easy.

Here’s how…

1) When you add a link in Cube for Teachers, we recommend sharing it in the topic area called “Other Teaching Resources”. Typically this area includes web resources pertaining to teaching strategies, helpful hints, views, tips etc.

 

2) When filling in the fields, be sure to include your name and the word “blog”. This way, someone can search for you by name along with the keyword “blog” and retrieve all of your blog links in one search. They can add additional keywords and refine their search to pinpoint a specific blog of yours.

As well, teachers can also add your link into their favourites or share it with professional learning communities inside Cube for Teachers.

Cube for Teachers is providing teachers with a voice and a choice – redefining the way Ontario educators are connecting and collaborating.  Soon, we’ll be expanding across Canada and beyond.

Share your blogs today and assist teachers who are in need of your reflections and ideas.

Sincerely,

The Administrative Team
