Gooru Learning Fellowship

The Morris School District is honored to be Gooru Learning's first partner on the East Coast. Gooru is looking for educators to become Gooru fellows to share Gooru course content and document their instructional model so that other educators can learn from them and remix content to meet a variety of instructional needs. Bonus: A possible trip to Redwood City, CA!

Gooru represents an entirely new approach to curriculum and instruction. It allows our teachers to connect with students in more meaningful ways because it allows teachers to use their ingenuity and judgement to meet students' needs in an incredibly efficient manner.

If you are using Gooru Learning and would like to apply for the fellowship, please find more information here.
