By Joe Mizereck, Founder www.GrantsAlert.com and @GrantsBuzz
A couple weeks ago I was contacted by a young woman who asked for my help in sharing info about a project she is involved in that will ultimately make life easier for teachers.Â I posted her info on GrantsAlert in this Alert.Â She asked me this week if I would be kind enough to mention her project in my bulletin…I told her I would like to first have an opportunity to see what she is working on to determine if I am comfortable encouragingÂ my readers to get involved.Â So, we had a webinar and I was very impressed not only with the tool (a learning management system) she has developed, but with her.Â
Alexandra Shaffer and her company, G2Collective Inc. are looking for K-12 schools and teachers to partner with them in a small business grant they are applying for from the Department of Education to test their platform, eTeachÂ®.Â This is a great opportunity for schools who don’t have Learning Management Systems yet or schools that are looking at what’s out there in terms of new technology to aid in curriculum creation and teacher collaboration.Â Â
eTeachÂ® is very different from other platforms out there because of its simple design, which makes it easy to use, and it’s patent pending module methodology, which is an innovative approach to helping teachers collaborate in the curriculum development process.Â They have also focused on keeping the course delivery highly interactive, providing a structure for teachers to give high quality feedback on work that students submit, and an online learning environment that focuses on teacher/student and student/student interaction.Â
They are offering a tremendous amount of support to the teachers and schools who take the time to partner with them.Â Their deadline is coming up quickly (March 14), so please reach out directly to this remarkably bright young woman Alexandra Shaffer at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at 917-482-3498 if you have any interest and would like more information!Â Â
You might be asking, what’s in this for Joe?Â The answer is, nothing.Â I like what she has done, I like Allie’s passion and her interest in helping teachers and I really like what she has developed. I think you will too.Â
Please don’t forgetÂ I amÂ offering FREEÂ general membership in the Grant Writers’ Directory to grant writers who join the directory in the next 7 days. All you need to do is insert"SparkSomeGood"in the promo code when asked in the sign-up process.Â Join the Grant Writers’ Directory TODAY!
Remember, when in doubt ask this one question:what’s in the best interest of the kids?
