Hello Muzabel, It was amazing to read about your idea and the actual impact that you are already making. I am working on a Teacher Support Network idea (https://openideo.com/challenge/refugee-education/ideas/teacher-support-network-website-magazine) that would help refugee teachers and volunteers from all over the world connect, share and discuss stories and best practices online and through a magazine (where the online option would not work). Let me know if you would like to connect.
Hello Em, thank you for the idea - I'll reach out to Muzabel and see how we can connect. As I mentioned, PeerLibrary could be used to create a "teacher support network" group and invite members that would be interested in sharing their stories and ideas via email (I can create a group, but would have to get their email addresses in order to invite them). This way, we could test how teachers would share resources and discuss them with peers. However, ideally, we would create a dedicated Teacher Support website where people could not only share resources and discuss texts, but also connect with mentors and maybe even chat with them online. Help with website development, hosting and maintenance would be needed here. I hope that more will be discussed on the next SF meetup when we enter the refining phase. Hopefully, we will come up with a useful working prototype soon and get a chance to test it in San Francisco as well as with communities around the world.
