The most successful edtech companies are transforming the way they make and sell products to create leadership opportunities for educators—in the marketplace, in schools and in the teaching profession. From certification programs to pricing models that sell direct to teachers, leadership driven collaboration means huge shifts for educators and edtech companies who often come from different cultural, procedural and organizational realities. But the payoff is huge: products that perform better in the classroom and marketplace and a step towards transforming the teaching profession with a new education industry that puts teachers at the center.

We’re a group of educators and edtech developers who are transforming our schools, companies and professions to tap the power of teacher leaders. We’ll discuss how companies can create conditions for teacher leadership and how educators can partner with companies to get the greatest dividends for their students, their careers and their profession.
