Since Meta’s new app Threads launched, it’s been a hit, and so far, it has been a breath of fresh air for educators, with many flocking to it. The platform has quickly fostered a growing community of educators with the term “Threaducators” already being dubbed as a reference to the educator community. In a time when being an educator has become increasingly more challenging, the platform serves as a means for educators to connect with, learn from, laugh with, and support one another. 

Threaducator community is strong

To ensure that Threaducators are better able to connect and collaborate with one another on the platform, Threaducator @ericcurts even created a Google form for educators to enter their Threads profile information and made the entries viewable in Google sheets. In mid-July, the form has roughly 1,000 entries from educators.

So what exactly are you in store for, if you join the ranks of Threaducators? Check out the list:
