Back in 2013, the term teacherpreneur really started to gain traction. In early 2014, we explored the idea in a post about the conditions that led to this new idea. In 2015-2020: The Rise Of The Teacherpreneur, Paul Moss explained why teachers are often the best creators of curricula:
“The first condition is a heightened and insightful understanding of the end-user’s needs. Teacherpreneurs naturally have an infinite advantage over edtech companies, as the end-user’s needs are often the teacherpreneur’s every waking thought. This has been intensified of late by the squeeze and pressure placed on teachers to become as efficient and resourceful as possible, and has turned the teacherpreneur into a lean mean finely tuned machine.”
This concept has led to the explosion of sites that allow teachers to create, sell, and otherwise share with the rest of the education world the ideas that, ten years ago, would’ve been limited to the other teachers in their hallway.
In this context is a new program from Scholastic that provides teacher-created and Scholastic-vetted printable resources for you classroom.
