Summary

#EdCorps

How can we give real world connection and relevance to classwork in K-12 classrooms? Real World Scholars is non-profit set out to solve this problem. We are creating a platform that allows any class to operate as a web-based business under the RWS umbrella. Currently, 200+ ​EdCorps ​are in business in 31 states. This panel we will explore what running an EdCorp really looks like in the classroom from English to STEAM. During ​SXSW​, RWS will be issuing $250k in grants to teachers looking to build EdCorps in their classroom.
