Nurturing Innovative Pioneers in Education
The second function of EIC's edPORTAL development is to nurture education pioneers and innovators to develop their ideas and practices that support personalized, student-powered learning for all young people, cradle to career.
This includes supporting pilot school teachers and leaders as they implement new platforms, practices, daily schedules and assessment strategies to transform from class-based bell schedules to individualized flex schedules organized around student agency, autonomy, and individualized plans.
We'll coach and support innovators however they need it - whether through connecting to professional development resources, industry experts, instructional coaches, technology support, funding, and/or marketing their original products to other educators.
On the edPORTAL platform, we'll share the work of these innovators with the community through three programs within the edHUB (second phase of development):
edTECH Marketplace, edLAB Beta, and edLAB Demo.
