Facebook Educator Guide

Giving people the power to promote equity and innovation in their learning communities.


Facebook for Education empowers educators and education administrators around the world to build equitable learning communities where passionate learners of all ages and backgrounds can grow and thrive.

Through our partnerships, programs, and tools, we offer resources to help educators like you connect more deeply with your learning community at home and the larger education community as a whole. We are deeply honored to have created this guide in collaboration with the National Network of State Teachers of the Year organization (NNSTOY). May this partnership empower you and your colleagues to find inspiration in this guide and beyond.
