NavigAtor Courses

Educator-curated, Classroom-tested.

In summer 2016, we debuted more than 35 courses developed and implemented by teachers and curriculum designers at innovative schools, districts, and charters. Featured courses are approved by, and used in, the districts, charters, and schools where they were developed. They are now available to be used by teachers and students anywhere.

Content that's worked at innovative schools, districts, and charters

Featured courses are designed and vetted by teachers and content experts, and implemented with students in classrooms across the nation.

Gooru Fellows

Gooru Fellows are innovative teachers who are implementing Gooru courses in their classrooms to personalize learning for their students. They use Gooru consistently and provide feedback to our team so we can ensure that what we build works in diverse classroom environments.

In the 2015-16 school year, we selected Gooru Fellows who contributed to the development and implementation of featured Gooru Courses. We are thankful for all that we learned from them and for their commitment to honor the human right to education!
