The key elements of teacher cultures (and I know these are open to debate) I would identify as:

Synchronous interactions interactions, with learners and other teachers take place live, in the moment.

They are location based in a school building and take place during the school day. 

They are led and influenced by senior teachers and Headteachers schools are built around hierarchies.

Learning is curriculum led.

There is a focus on formal assessment.

Even if you contend the extent to which each of these is a element of teacher cultures it becomes clear there is a mismatch with the cultural features of an online community.
