TES Launches Facebook for teachers

The Times Educational Supplement has always been a one stop shop for anyone working in education, with its extensive articles, features, and recruitment section. With online creating ever more opportunities for natural migration the TES has launched TES Connect, a social network for anyone in the teaching profession.

The website features everything you would expect to find on a site like this, such as Teaching Recourses, Jobs Sections, Lesson Plans, and even a very handy Salary checker.

Although this is not really anything new with sites such as Linkedin etc, already providing similar services for various industries, TES Connect is already claimed to be the biggest social network serving a single profession. With its clean layout, and endless resource, I can see this becoming a very helpful site to those it is targeted at.
