Gooru Gets Some Press
The Christensen Institute, the leading think tank on disruptive technology, recently published a study on Gooru’s collaborative approach to designing education technology with educators. The report features our ongoing work with Leadership Public Schools (LPS), a public charter high school network in the San Francisco Bay Area. Together, LPS and Gooru have developed Gooru’s learning navigator based on LPS’s innovative instructional practices.
