Our Think Tank

TheEdCollab Think Tank is the core of our work. Comprised of educators from diverse roles, backgrounds, and contexts that study, research, share, and develop cutting edge literacy practices and mindsets together. It is this dedicated, collaborative learning that keeps us on the leading edge of global literacy practice and grounded in today’s education landscape. Our work is woven from the fabric of our learning community and draws on the expertise and experiences of our network.

What brings us together is a passion for innovation, a background in education, and a belief in children and our profession.

Fellows are distinguished members of our Think Tank. They are veteran educators who bring with them a wealth of experiences and roles across literacy education. Throughout our history, some of the most influential voices in literacy education have been part of our Fellowship. Fellows help shape our work and vision while also further developing their own pedagogy and scholarship. Fellows also provide literacy consulting and speaking services through The Educator Collaborative.

Our Book Ambassadors (a special category of Fellow) provide particular expertise to the organization and our members on new and upcoming titles, connections with authors and publishers, and build special learning opportunities throughout the year. Our Book Ambassadors are available for consulting, speaking, and provide support to schools developing text collections.
