Ever had a great idea for an innovative education tool but didn’t have the resources to follow through? What if a little bit of seed money was all it took to get you from thinking about an idea to having a real tool that others can benefit from? That’s the idea behind Edudemic Projects.
There are countless great ideas being thrown around cyberspace every day when it comes to enhancing education through technology. Many of these ideas could turn into huge worldwide success stories if they just got one thing: funding. However, crowdsourcing services like Kickstarter and VC funding firms don’t exactly pay much attention to a teacher with a good idea. That’s where Edudemic comes in.
Edudemic has partnered with ChipIn Services to develop a new place for teachers and education professionals to apply for funding. There is a simple application that you can fill out and, if approved, you’ll get your own page on Edudemic and ChipIn that you can send users to so they can donate. It’s completely up to you how much money is needed and up to you to make sure the project or idea uses every cent to make the dream become a reality.
Why It’s Different
There are other crowd-funding sites out there but none are devoted to funding educational projects like Edudemic Projects. Kickstarter doesn’t allow funding for things like websites or hiring web developers. This leaves innovative teachers with a great idea who don’t know coding out of luck. Donors Choose is a terrific place for education-related funding but it is only to give classroom supplies to teachers and students. Teachers and other education professionals need so much more. If it’s related to education and a good idea, it’ll get approved and it’s up to you to make the funding happen.
