The Educators' Lab

The Educators' Lab This is a professional learning network for teachers to share ideas, strategies, and resources. We believe in the power of TEACHERS to work together to solve educational challenges.

Our goal at The Educators’ Lab is to efficiently use professional development/in-service time so that educators can create solutions to classroom or school specific challenges. We use entrepreneurial principles to help educators strengthen their growth mindset and further develop their problem solving and changemaking abilities.
