Expanding Learning Possibilities through Crowdfunding Education Projects

Presenters: Peter Lindberg and Jaime Wood
Location: Portland, Oregon, USA


Presentation Description: In a 15-20 minute video, we demonstrate how educators are using crowdfunding to expand their ability to innovate, connect to community, and test new pedagogical ideas. We share examples of several educators who have used IncitED (a crowdfunding platform for education) to do research, start new schools, buy classroom supplies, and more. Our thesis is that crowdfunding is a grassroots, democratic way to encourage community involvement in education, whether that mean simply improving classrooms or reforming entire systems. We’ll also discuss the best practices for using crowdfunding for education and some tips for starting a campaign.

    Thank you for all the great ideas and tips for successfully crowdfunding for a project. And thank you for creating a platform for teachers who do not have budgets or grants to do innovative things with their students.
