The proposed research is to investigate and develop a collaborative educational environment as a tool to aid teachers in between grades K-12 in the STEM, Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, disciplines. The resulting model will be used as a component of a larger learning environment that will remove the social networking taboo stigma currently associated with social networking sites. The model will extend beyond that of traditional social networking by supplementing class lectures in a fun, engaging and thought provoking manner instead of the typical classroom lectures. A survey was done to analyze the perceived effectiveness and receptiveness to the proposed educational tool as determined by K-12 teachers. This study seeks to gauge teacher’s receptiveness and willingness to use an online educational forum to supplement traditional classroom lectures.
