I’m an educator and advocate in the K-12 space.
I see tremendous potential for Roam to support teachers in becoming the change-makers, collaborators and knowledge-workers they need to be in order to move our educations systems into their next iteration.
As a starting point, I see Roam as the everyday hub for class teachers to use for planning, assessing, reporting, reflecting and personal/professional development. I’m working on some systems, templates and workflows for how this might look.
Beyond the day-to-day, Roam has the potential to engage teachers in collective knowledge-building - the days of isolation in your own classroom are at an end (or should be in my opinion!) and I see huge potential for system wide change and growth by encouraging teachers to re-imagine their practice as life-long learners who model the skills and capacities we are charged to instil in students.
Roam also has the potential for highlighting educational research and thought in a public database so that educators can see where they are in the progression of knowledge over time and build their own expertise.
And so much more…
So far I haven’t encountered other K-12 educators using Roam but hope to recruit more and populate this thread with some great ideas.
