Abstract

The goal of this paper is to develop a list of core requirements that a social network application constructed for the purpose of supporting teacher professional development should include. Teacher professional development programs are crucial for the effectiveness of teaching and thus for the success of the next generation of students. With the daily use of technology through email, online shopping and online communication, we believe that the usage of popular social applications such as Facebook would be ideal to create a community among teachers and facilitate the exchange of professional development activities.
