I know many of you have heard about DonorsChoose.org to fund your classroom needs and projects, but have you heard about Kickstarter.com to fund your creative projects?
Kickstarter is similar to DonorsChoose in that people from around the world can discover and sponsor your project. I think Kickstarter would be a great funding opportunity for you teacher-creators who want to write your own children's books or create an app.
See what this teacher-creator is doing and consider helping him fund his project. His project is animated music videos that go with songs he wrote and recorded to teach beginning Spanish.
