Technology now plays a big role in delivering quality education to children. A lot of teachers and fellow content-creating educators recognize this and have taken to creating an online learning space for the youth. Hence, this niche became the nook for educational influencers with a mission to build engaging lesson plans.

Educational content takes up a large space in social media platforms like TikTok, Instagram, and Twitter. Teacher influencers contribute to this by uploading engaging resources and encouraging parents to use these platforms with their children.

Grab your pencil, eraser, and notebook—these are 11 of our favorites!
