GURU for the NYC Department of Education
GURU is an App in development for the NYC Dept. of Education to help solve a very real problem when substitutes or teachers have no plans left when covering classes. In emergencies, often teachers are left with no plans at all when covering classes, and limited or no access to the internet. This app is designed to provide DOE approved offline lesson plans to anyone who downloads the application, allowing for a one stop solution to be used for critical situations where a lesson plan is required quickly.
The NYC Dept of Education knows that there is a big problem in the education system with regard to Substitutes. All too often emergencies come up where there are no plans and a teacher, administrator or substitute has to 'wing it' and fill time without any lesson plan. This app solves that problem.
