Setting the Audience of Your Posts

If you belong to a teacher community on TeachersConnect, then you can post solely to that community using the “Audience” button. Your post will only appear to the people who belong to that community.
  1. Click the “Audience” button under the text box
  2. Click the community select drop down menu
  3. Choose your desired community
Note: If you do not use the “Audience” button, then your post or question will appear to the entire TeachersConnect Community.

What data about me can the rest of the TeachersConnect community see?

Your profile, posts, questions, comments, answers, followers, people you are following, date you joined TeachersConnect, and your recent activity are viewable to all members on TeachersConnect. Other users cannot see your email address, password, or anonymous questions, but the rest of your profile is viewable by the TeachersConnect community.

What does TeachersConnect do with the information collected?

We use the information to tailor your experience to you and to limit the distraction of conversations that are not relevant to you. For example, if you teach AP Chemistry, we’ll make sure that your TeachersConnect experience isn’t dominated by strategies for early literacy instruction (unless you’ve identified early literacy instruction as a particular area of interest).

TeachersConnect also provides the data to organizations and companies who are working to improve education. For example, we partner with Teacher Preparation Programs to provide them with data to improve their programs. Please refer to our privacy policy for more information about what we do with the data we collect.

What happens if a post is disrespectful or unprofessional?

If you see a post that is disrespectful or unprofessional you can contact support at TeachersConnect to notify us. We reserve the right to take down posts at any time. In addition, if an individual makes multiple posts that we need to take down, we reserve the right to ban that individual from the community. Our decision is final.
