Congratulations on choosing to be part of the Teacher Entrepreneur Project. You will be navigating through the overwhelming technological applications designed to improve your pedagogy. As an independent contractor, you are reinventing school and learning, creating "one buttock players", a musical term that means when musical artists struggle to play complex music, they move their bodies and become "one buttock players" and their music soars. During this learning process may you be "Living life on ‘one-buttock’ which allows for spontaneity and freedom".
The purpose of this project will be to provide teachers exposure to the multitude of teaching tools available to them, and help them master the ones they feel most valuable.
This project will be managed by Ryan Ratfield. Teachers will meet weekly for group study, then elect to work independently and/or work together. As this program expands, training will be provided by professional organizations, like CUE, and EdTech.
This website, Envisioneducation21.com., provides a training platform for you to deepen your knowledge in everything Google and beyond.
INCENTIVIZING LEARNING: You will be paid for 100 hours at $30.00 an hour for your research and documentation of learning, through your Google Sites, Blogs, Screencastify, etc. for a total of $5000.00. Th A total of $4000.00 will be paid toward your working and sharing with TEP teachers, based on what model fits best, face to face, Goolge Hangouts, etc. You can earn the reamaining $1000.00 for time you spend sharing your knowledge with other teachers.

Note: When Harvard launched its educational research project, they called it "Project Zero" http://www.pz.harvard.edu/ They chose "zero" because they started from nothing and now they are something. As the first participants in The Teacher Entrepreneur Project, you are all at zero, but with your group collaboration, you participate in helping design a "scalable" staff development model free for all teachers and school districts. for other teachers that will not only enhance their teaching, but significantly engage their students.
Note: When exploring teacher blogs and you may discover other online training programs, not suggested in these modules, The CITE Foundation will reimburse you for training expenses and time.
