Writing Edutainer, gt.school (Remote) - $100,000/year USD

Job ID: 4739
Description

Do you love writing but hate how it’s being taught in schools? Are you a compelling virtual presenter who can grab the attention of the digital “room”? Join gt.school to lead fast-paced, dynamic virtual writing workshops for teens!

You will lead vibrant, culturally-relevant writing workshops for teens ages 11-15 years old. The future of instruction is edutainment - a mixture of education & entertainment - and we want to turn you into the next great edutainer. We’ll provide the topics; you’ll customize them to the interests and passions of your writing cohort, inspiring them to write great content.

gt.school is revolutionizing writing education. Students in traditional schools write about topics they don’t care about, in formats that don’t translate to today’s audiences. We’re teaching students to write in digital-native formats (e.g., website, blog, social media) on topics that matter to them. Feedback focuses on substance and we utilize apps to improve grammar and syntax.
 

Join us today to build your own digital edutainer brand and inspire a generation of writers!
