A couple of months ago, I read an article in GOOD Magazine titled “Are ‘Teacherpreneurs’ the Future of Education?” There was one line in that whole article that really stuck out to me about “teacherpreneurs: the people who teach in the classroom are also the ones generating education policy reform, which is a 180 from what happens now.”
My experience as a student really influenced my views on education. While we talked about how to change education, we challenged ourselves to create something that used the power of the Internet to democratize learning outside of the classroom. Skillshare was born shortly afterwards and we haven’t looked back since.
But, what happens when teachers think like entrepreneurs?
