We are currently seeking virtual volunteers with a variety of backgrounds to become part of Educurious' Expert Connection. Over 800 students will be looking for "experts" in different fields to discuss career options, learn about pathways to jobs, further education needed, etc. We are looking for volunteers that our students can reach out to periodically throughout the school year for career advice. Students may message simply review your profile (think LinkedIN), send a message or two, or develop into a longer relationship.
As you know, we are all products of our network, and one of our goals is to expand that world for our students. When students are exposed to working professionals they often work harder on assignments, are more engaged, become empowered, and are exposed to new careers. You are really helping make a difference!
All jobs/careers welcome!
Educurious is an innovative solution with the goal of transforming the experience of high school for teachers & students. Our solutions use a blended learning model featuring teachers as guides, relevant and interesting projects for students, as well as professionals (experts) to provide feedback and real world experiences to students. Curriculum descriptions can be accessed by looking at our website: www.educurious.org.
How does it work?
Utilizing the Educurious Platform, students will ask Experts for feedback on select assignments. Experts are not expected to grade student's work. Instead, their primary role is to enrich the student's understanding of their work by serving as the professional who can help further develop the student's skills and expose them to new exciting careers. All communication with the students is asynchronous so Experts can fit it in around their schedule and they do not have to visit the classroom or be available during school hours.
