 A new project launched with support from the University of Virginia will attempt to create an online hub for educators to write and get paid for providing detailed accounts of their inspiring or agonizing experiences using ed-tech products.

The Jefferson Education Exchange, announced today, is being rolled out at the same time that a separate entity that also sought to bridge disconnects between ed-tech providers and schools, the Jefferson Education Accelerator, closes shop, after failing to gain traction on a large scale.

The new organization, a nonprofit dubbed the JEX, will invite teachers from around the country to offer in-depth written accounts of their time spent trying to implement digital tools and platforms in their classrooms.
