The power of connections.
The Educurious Expert Network (TEEN)™ connects students to pivotal role models that might be missing in their young lives. One inspirational adult can make all the difference and lead to academic and career success.
Connecting kids to a future they care about.
As a virtual advisor, our Experts inspire students to finish school by sharing what they do, how they work and the difference they’re making in the world. Experts in our pilot phases have positively influenced students in a number of ways:
- Award-winning Seattle producer and reporter Enrique Cerna provides insights on how to write an evidence-based Op-Ed piece.
- Helene Gayle, President and CEO of CARE USA, helps freshman biology students become epidemiologists in training.
- Transmedia fiction creator Jordan Weisman guides students in solving a mystery based on the works of Edgar Allan Poe.
Choose how you want to connect.
You choose how you want to be involved, when and where you connect and how much time you want to share.
- Some Experts define projects and present challenges in feature videos which are integral to the course.
- Some Experts visit the classroom via Skype or Webinars to field questions on real-world projects.
- Other Experts provide helpful tips, suggestions and constructive feedback on a student’s work in progress via the Educurious virtual network.
Whatever your level of involvement, you’ll have the structure and support to make a real difference in a young person’s life.
We are actively recruiting subject matter Experts for new courses. If you or your organization is interested in how to get involved, click here to complete an application or email us at email@example.com.
Behind the Scenes: Gary Ross, Academy Award-nominated writer of Big and Dave and director of Pleasantville and Seabiscuit, explains to Educurious™ how he directed and co-wrote The Hunger Games for the big screen. He discusses the creative process of bringing the bestselling book to life on film and gives advice to students on their writing and education in our English Language Arts unit, "Imagining Alternate Worlds."
A unique feature of the Educurious curriculum is how
subject matter experts are integrated into a rich,
multimedia experience centered on project-based learning.
