As grand prize recipient, Curio received extensive funding and mentorship opportunities to develop and launch its innovative new app that seamlessly connects teachers with every skill set as they build both online ideas and community on a global scale.
Founded by 2016 Kentucky Teacher of the Year, Ashley Lamb-Sinclair, Curio celebrates teachers for what they are: educational experts. The interactive app delivers an online forum where educators can curate, search, and share dynamic instructional tools and multimedia resources. A lifelong learner and rebel, Ashley crafted Curio to resonate with passionate teachers who go beyond mandated curriculum requirements, striving to motivate, encourage, and inspire their students.
The new app uses digital Cards & Stacks to organize a diverse range of curated resources including videos, articles, lessons, images, documents, and graphics. Teachers log into their user account to create new cards, run searches, and share materials with other educators within the Curio network. The company also has a designated "Rebel Squad" of super users comprised of Teacher of the Year recipients and other influencers in education from across the country who lead social media engagement, content curation, and product development to optimize the Curio experience. Anna Baldwin, a 20-year teaching veteran, Rebel Squad member, and 2014 Montana Teacher of the Year believes that Curio is a game changer for educators.
"Teachers can spend countless hours doing online searches to gather ideas for their classroom. Curio cuts out that extra step, saving invaluable time with every lesson. Curio allows users to curate and share a wide range of materials in real-time for instant access to inspiration."
