Enable teachers to focus on teaching and the internet to instruct, assess, empower communications and amplify efficient workflows.
Tell us about your idea
Recently, teachers have been challenged with less student interaction, digital curriculum development, and new workflows. Students & parents are suffering from it. Collectively we can make learning better than before the crisis.
Teachers are human beings and exceptional at working with other human beings.
The Internet enables us to learn, communicate and collaborate at a distance.
Distance Learning Content (DLC) is comprehensive and effective.
There are 3 million teachers in the US building effectively 13, K-12 curriculums. The Internet alone is a poor substitute for teachers. DLC is largely not curriculum-focused, disparate, and ranges in quality, cost, & features.
Create pure, open & crowd-sourced, DLC curriculums that enable comprehensive student and teacher workflows, from subject-to-subject, continually evaluating student knowledge, with remediation and assessment.
Teachers focus on people, software focuses on workflows, students gain agency over their education, and we are ALL better off than before.
Tell us a little bit about yourself and what inspired you to share this idea.
We have 3 children that we are effectively homeschooling right now due to the inefficiencies with the rapidly assembled distance curriculum. Not everyone is lucky enough to have the time to help their children and this distance learning situation IMO will continue through 2021. The inequality of education will become ever wider unless we can free up teachers to do what they do best, by leveraging the strengths of the internet and edtech content.
I have an array of experience from being one of the many product design father's of Microsoft's Official Distance Learning for their global certification training, to being a 6th-12th grader teacher. The content and technology are out there. It just needs to be combined in effective and efficient workflows that allow students to be independent and teachers the time to teach. Now is the moment.
