Common Curriculum is one of a number of companies in the area making the Baltimore region a growing center for EdTech. It’s also one of 33 companies competing for one of three, $100,000 awards in the inaugural InvestMaryland Challenge.
The web-based app works as a weekly lesson planner, as Technically Baltimore reported last summer when Common Curriculum launched. (In a Q&A with MDBizNews, cofounder Robbie Earle calls it “the Google Docs of lesson planning.”) Teachers accustomed to shifting around wieldy Post-It notes on a desktop calendar to make adjustments in their course schedules can now, with Common Curriculum, drag and drop lesson plans to different days and weeks seamlessly.
Since transitioning from a beta to a public release last October, 7,800 people have signed up for an account with Common Curriculum.
