Gooru Innovation Fellows (GIF) Program Goals
By June 2016, our first class of 25-35 Gooru Innovation Fellows will:
Share Gooru course content and document their instructional model so that other educators can learn from them and remix content to meet a variety of instructional needs.
Attend/Host regional meet-ups and classroom observations to understand and improve practices.
Provide Gooru with monthly feedback based on their usage to improve the product and inform best practice in implementation.

Fellows’ Commitment
Each Gooru Innovation Fellow will participate in the following activities as part of the 2015-16 cohort:
Create a Gooru course complete with units, lessons and assessments to share publicly.
Visit another Fellow 1-2 times to observe their use of Gooru to improve one’s own practice implementing personalized learning.
Host another Fellow in their classroom and share practices around implementing Gooru
Participate in monthly meetings via Google Hangout (possibly in person) with Gooru’s team (aka “Kangoorus”) to provide feedback on the product and their usage to improve the product and inform best practice in implementation.
Share their story with one another and the Gooru Education Community.
In spring 2016, attend a showcase in Redwood City, CA to receive public recognition while celebrating everyone’s journey and story together.

Gooru’s Commitment
Kangoorus will provide the following support to Fellows:
Capturing each Fellow’s story and journey and sharing it with the greater Gooru Education Community.
Connecting this cohort via webinars, regional meet-ups, classroom observations, etc.
Covering the costs of travel and substitute teachers as needed .
Recognizing each Fellow through our spring 2016 showcase.
