  • 7. Resource sharing among educators • 500 content contributors • Paid and free content accessible to educators and caregivers • Potential for greater impact relies on teachers accessing, promoting and expert curation, so best resources rise to top • Long-term viability and sustainability rely on decentralized ownership by states, districts http://learningregistry.org/ Learning Registry
  • 8. Data Literacy • Increasing demand for data scientists (across industries) – Burtchworks Study • Projections of US shortage of 140-190K employees w/ deep analytical skills by – McKinsey Global Institute • Enables teachers to bring relevant and engaging topics into their classrooms; critical local and community issues • Used by hundreds of teachers (and their students) across 19 countries https://tuvalabs.com/ TuvaLabs
