Scoot & Doodle announced today the launch of its Ambassador Program, designed to gather key insights from educators, helping mold products that are relevant and valuable for today’s learning environments. Scoot & Doodle’s real-time social creativity platform enables students and classmates to get creative together face-to-face, practicing critical 21st century learning and innovation skills.
“Educators are a tremendously valuable resource. They care about helping students become passionate learners. We want to gain insights directly from them so that we can create tools and solutions that actually solve problems and help kick start young entrepreneurial minds,” said Christine Egy Rose, CEO of Scoot & Doodle. “Our ambassadors understand the power of collaborative creativity. We are thrilled to have Kyle Pace, Google Certified Teacher, Alison Anderson, veteran teacher and managing editor of Getting Smart, and Rachel Meyers, Executive Director of CuriOdyssey and 2013 NSTA Award Winner as early participants in the program.”
The Scoot & Doodle Ambassador Program will work with educators to develop content and programs that not only engage students but also provide a foundation for continued learning focusing on topics that utilize the 4C’s — critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity. Scoot & Doodle Ambassadors will pilot new content, have early access to new features and collaborate with other top educators.
“Scoot & Doodle has a clear commitment to making learning a creative and collaborative experience for students,” said Kyle Pace, Instructional Technology Specialist, in Missouri. “If you want to have a voice in helping make Scoot & Doodle better you really need to be part of their new Ambassador Program. If your school or district isn’t utilizing Google+ Hangouts already I’d highly recommend checking out Scoot & Doodle.”
Scoot & Doodle on Google+ Hangouts provides a teaching tool designed for students from middle school through college to discuss, collaborate and build on ideas together on a shared canvas. The company introduces a fun way to have virtual creative jam sessions and provides endless opportunities for informal and formal learning.
