New! Gooru Summer PD Workshops
This summer, Gooru is planning to run two free series of professional development workshops to engage and support educators who are building with and implementing Gooru. Read on to see if they are right for you or your school/district!

Course-Building for Personalized Learning
Are you eager to create a personalized learning course for your students? Are you ready to learn from and contribute to an innovative community of educators, content experts, and Gooru Innovation Fellows? Join us for Gooru Course-building workshops this summer in Silicon Valley/San Francisco Bay Area! Work with our own curriculum specialists, consulting experts, and Gooru teachers in content areas across K-12.

Navigate Math

Gooru and Leadership Public Schools, a northern California charter management network, have collaborated to develop Navigate Math, a math course to help close the achievement gap in 9th grade. Students in Navigate Math who started below grade level showed an average of 1.6 years of growth this semester, as measured by NWEA MAP.

Gooru is looking for 100 innovative 7th-9th grade math teachers across the globe who are committed to closing the math achievement gap in their schools by implementing Navigate Math. This summer, we will offer professional development in rolling out Navigate Math, as well as provide ongoing professional development and support throughout the year at no cost to you or your district.
