HundrED has not validated this innovation
Why did you create this innovation?
Educators are immersed in a world of ubiquitous digital and physical resources to support classroom instruction. The burden remains on the individual educator to evaluate all sought after resources. The EB platform aims to organize all available resources supporting preK-12 instruction in an organized, ever-evolving format, curated by professional educators.
How does your innovation work in practice?
Education Blueprint is an interactive professional learning network that allows preK-12 educators around the world to connect with each other by adding original content and sharing resources with other educators that make for the best learning experiences. Members of the EB community login to a continuously updated feed of shared educational resources to use related to their selected position. The opportunity to rate, review, and sort through content by grade, rating, subject, and standard provides a community for every preK-12 educator to collaborate over educational resources and practices in order to gather innovative ideas to use within their schools and classrooms. We believe that when teachers have the knowledge and resources they need to feel confident and prepared, they will leave a greater impact on their students bringing more opportunities for learning to them within their classrooms.
How has it been spreading?
Since the launch of Education Blueprint in July 2020, we have built a partnership with the Teach Better Team and have been sponsored by the Pennsylvania Association for Middle Level Education and American Middle Level Education as a "New and Noteworthy" idea. We have quickly have grown our membership to nearly 1,500 educators spread throughout the country.
Education Blueprint has set goals to continue to partner with existing educator networks to expand this free platform, encouraging educators to come together in one place for all resource sharing and networking. Dr. Kelly Pascarella, Executive Director, has presented at multiple conferences including Pete & C, PAMLE, AMLE, ILP, and ISTE.
