Our Educator Network
The iCivics Educator Network is an energetic group of educational professionals who represent iCivics with outreach and training and, just as importantly, provide the organization with invaluable insights and guidance relating to the field, the profession, and the realities of the classroom.
The Educator Network is an absolutely crucial aspect of implementing Justice O’Connor’s vision to serve teachers and students with access to a high quality, fun, and free civic education experience. The group first launched in 2011 with 8 ‘Teacher Council’ members and iCivics had 2,742 teachers registered. Now, more than 150,000 teachers have registered with iCivics and the Educator Network now has 150 members, including classroom teachers, social studies supervisors, technology specialists, and administrators. The iCivics Educator Network has been amplifying our message by training hundreds of their colleagues, presenting at workshops, hosting social network events, participating in grant opportunities, and advising iCivics staff as they developed new instructional resources.
