2018 Summer Lea(R)n Fellowship Now Accepting Applications

"Passion led us here" image

LearnPlatform was designed by, with and for educators. Three summers ago, we kicked off the Lea(R)n Fellowship program to take that collaboration to the next level. Last year, the program received a record number of educator applicants from across our home state of North Carolina — great teacher leaders who want to help make results matter. We are excited to open applications for the fourth year of the Lea(R)n Fellowship program. Applications will be accepted and reviewed until May 25th at 11:59 pm eastern. Fellows selected to participate in the 2018 program will be notified by June 4th.

Three ways Lea(R)n Fellow’s help other educators:

1) Increase access to tools that drive results.

As a Lea(R)n Fellow, you will help educators leverage LearnPlatform to improve instruction and outcomes with access to a research-backed rubric and detailed insights on more than 5,000 edtech products from thousands of verified educators. Teachers can discover digital tools, earn points to get rewards (gift cards!) and ask peers in the LearnCommunity about any product. You’ll help define and enhance the LearnPlatform teacher experience, making edtech management, organization, discovery and feedback more accessible to fellow teachers.

2) Improve edtech decision-making in schools across the country.

Audit and improve the implementation process by engaging with fellow teachers, instructional technologists, edtech champions and product companies through online chats, webinars, PD sessions, and direct hands-on interaction. You will help support the successful implementation of and training on LearnPlatform to advance education technology use in classrooms across the country, ensuring equitable access to the technology that works best for teachers and students.

3) Make LearnPlatform better for other educators.

Be a voice for fellow teachers as you engage in thorough user testing and feature design feedback to improve the platform experience. No one understands the realities of classroom technology better than teachers — and no one is more qualified to advise their teams on what works and what doesn’t. You’ll share your input and feedback throughout the fellowship to help design new features or enhance existing ones. Your feedback will impact hundreds of thousands of teachers and students across the country. If you have an idea, tell us, if you think something could be done better, let’s fix it! Leave your mark.
