Today we are pleased to release a major update to the Edutopia website that is the culmination of many months of work. Our intention is to better meet the needs of our audience and the education community at large. With that in mind, here are some of the changes you’ll notice:

  • Pages will load much faster, especially for those of you on mobile devices.

  • Every article now has a uniform layout that looks clean and beautiful and is easy to read.

  • We’ve streamlined the navigation and added a simpler, more powerful, search.

  • To make way for new growth, we’ve pruned our collection of resources, so you’ll see more of what’s current and relevant to you first.

  • Community forum posts have been retired; however, we’ve preserved some of the best as articles.

  • An updated Facebook commenting system lets you tag friends, add pictures and videos, and sort comments—features you’ve asked for! (This replaces two former commenting systems that fragmented discussions.)

  • And you don’t need to register or create a profile to use any part of the site.

Today’s release builds upon improvements we’ve been rolling out over the past two years in order to modernize the site and expand our editorial coverage. In 2017, you may have noticed that we removed advertising from the site. In addition, we introduced more variety in our storytelling: everything from short animations to the blogs you know and love to feature-length articles about the latest research and practical classroom strategies.

While our website and ways of presenting content are always evolving, our mission remains the same—to tell the stories about what works in education. We’re always looking for new opportunities to elevate educator voices and foster conversations about student learning. To that end, we hope you’ll join discussions and connect with peers on our , , and pages. If you’re interested in writing for us, be sure to check out our improved submission process.

Stay tuned for more improvements! In the meantime, we’re listening. Send your feedback or suggestions to us at: [email protected].

Thank you for being part of our community and for everything you do to improve the educational experience for millions of students across the country.
