Join Istation's Exclusive Community to Get Better Student Outcomes

Why are communities so important?

Istation has been asking educators for their feedback and listening to those in the field to shape the launch of our new online community, the Red Cape Community. We want to make sure our exclusive group honors what you are doing every day to make your students successful.

According to Harvard University’s Center for the Developing Child, learning communities connect people and give those involved a place to share what’s working to improve student outcomes. It’s a collective impact.

Strong support communities are paramount to educator success because they’re often an important source of social connection among other professionals and a place to share ideas. Participation in a community bonded by best practices, student success, celebration, and professional learning supports educational success and well-being.

What is Istation’s Red Cape Community?

We’ve launched an interactive platform for educators using Istation’s products and tools to listen and learn from each other. The goal of the community is to provide many benefits:

  • A single platform that delivers professional development, networking, and collaboration opportunities for educators who use Istation
  • Free access to core features and exclusive content
  • A forum for you to influence the development of Istation
  • An expanded professional network to educators nationwide

Within the Red Cape Community, you will be able to experience several spaces and experiences:

  • Teacher’s Lounge
  • Istation Reading Space
  • Istation Math Space
  • Istation Lectura Space
  • Pre-K–2nd Grade Educator Space
  • 3rd–5th Grade Educator Space
  • Middle School Educator Space

What are the benefits of joining our online community?

As a member of this community, you will have access to a support network of your peers and Istation experts. Whether you turn to your community to seek knowledge or to just share your success, having a community in your professional career has an impact on overall fulfillment. These are just a few of the benefits of the community:

  • Professional learning
  • Answers to questions
  • Inspiration and new ideas
  • Professional networking

The amazing part about the Red Cape Community is that you can enhance your professional life just by showing up. Community involvement can enrich your own life and the lives of the people at your campus and in your district.

Join our exclusive community today and collaborate with others in education to get better student outcomes.
