Thank you Reimagine Education for inviting me to another inspiring event and for allowing me the privilege of presenting again The Bootstrapping Checklist, an open innovation program happening in my classroom in Toronto. The program is a grassroots online student social network centered around social entrepreneurship.
Students agree to email market each other prototype designs and surveys in response to local needs in their community. Teams collect and interpret their data to feed into their product development cycles – in the classroom it’s Project-Based Learning that marries Empathy and Design Thinking to practice Social Entrepreneurship.
I have included the slide deck from my Bootstrapping Checklist 2017 Reimagine Education Presentation, but for a more in depth look at The Bootstrapping Checklist, please refer to blog page here.
Education Entrepreneurship at UPenn GSE
As a public school teacher in Toronto, I am heartened by the work being accomplished at University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education. The Education Entrepreneurship Master’s Program is forging the alloy of Education Entrepreneurship with The Graduate School of Education, The Wharton Business School, The School of Engineering and Applied Science.
We need to attract the best and brightest ‘teacherpreneurs’ to help develop the next generation of teachers and support and inspire those who are innovating now in classrooms locally, nationally, and globally.
