Torrance, CA – November 26, 2007 – Knowledge Adventure, a leader in educational software for the home and the classroom, has become an affiliate partner of WeAreTeachers, a new online teaching, learning and business network, to boost marketing opportunities for its instructional products.
WeAreTeachers provides a Knowledge Marketplace where teachers can use personal profiles that they create to price and sell their own content such as lesson plans or video-based instruction. These network members can also make qualified recommendations of vendor-offered products and services found in the WeAreTeachers Knowledge Marketplace online catalog. Educator members make a profit when recommended items are purchased by another member through the recommender’s WeAreTeacher personal marketplace. Additionally, all members have access to Web 2.0 technologies including blogs, forums and video communications, which can be used to share ideas and opinions.
"We have always valued teacher feedback and interaction," said Dan Cavalli, vice president school division for Knowledge Adventure. "It’s been our tradition to rely on teachers to be beta testers and product evangelists, as well as to share their uses of our programs with the rest of our customer base. Joining the WeAreTeachers community allows us to enhance and extend our outreach efforts through social networking for educators."
"Knowledge Adventure has been a leader in the development of educational products that have taken technology-driven approaches to helping students learn," said Sandy Fivecoat, CEO of WeAreTeachers. "Since our goal is to make the network the source for recommended top-quality teacher-developed and commercial learning resources, Knowledge Adventure’s research-based, standards-aligned products are an excellent fit. We are extremely pleased to partner with this company."
Scheduled for a launch in the fall of 2007, WeAreTeachers will provide educators with tiered-level access to its knowledge marketplace, offering the choice of free or subscription-based participation.
