Edupedia: We Define Education

Edupedia is a digital encyclopedia/glossary/dictionary hybrid that allows its user to find well-researched information on any education-related topic. Some entries are only a few sentences and define basic educational terms. Other listings are one to two paragraphs long, cover foundational educational concepts and resemble your traditional glossary entry. The last type of listing is more expansive, includes several sections and resembles full-length encyclopedic entries.

Our entries are written in accesible language, staying away from unecessary jargon and academic language, when possible. Edupedia is continuously updated, and reinvents itself as the field evolves, serving as an authoritative resource for knowledge and information about teaching and learning.

Edupedia covers widely and seldom used education terms, concepts, ideas, and strategies. Each entry contains a definition of its topic and if warranted explains what how educators, administrator’s students, parents, policymakers, journalists, etc. can use this information to become better informed and when necessary; take action. From there we continue the discussion with essential information that reveals the nuances of the topic.

Whenever possible, we stay away from including education data in our content, as it is in a constant state of fluctuation, and is too perishable to keep up with. Edupedia is a must-have for anyone interested in finding out how education and the teaching and learning process work.

Well, that’s about it. If you have any questions, send us an email or contact us via social media.
