Why is "being positive" a core value of the Socratic Community?

1 Answer

Learning something new can be difficult and scary. Students learn best when they are in an environment where they feel safe and supported.

We created Socratic to be a safe place for learners everywhere. Everyone who is a part of Socratic wants to make learning easier.

On Socratic, make sure to:

  • Be friendly!
  • If you see someone do something great, cheer them on
  • If someone gets an answer wrong, teach them the right way to do it and encourage them to try again
  • Have fun

No one wants to be part of a community with a mean or negative culture.

It is absolutely not OK to:

  • Make someone feel stupid
  • Be disrespectful of other people on the site
  • Be mean to contributors
