Bulger, Sean M.; Jones, Emily M.; Katz, Nicole; Shrewsbury, Gentry; Wood, Justin
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance, v87 n8 p21-26 2016
The reality-competition television series Shark Tank affords up-and-coming entrepreneurs the opportunity to make a formal business presentation to a panel of potential investors. Adopting a similar framework, entrepreneurial teachers have started using web-based collaborative fundraising or crowdsourcing as a tool to build program capacity with the ultimate goal of increasing student learning. The purpose of this article is to provide an overview of crowdsourcing as a viable approach for resourcing physical education programs, including teacher success stories and guidelines for putting together an effective fundraising campaign using a crowdsourcing approach.
