Frontline Tech Launches Low-Cost Collection of Learning, Professional Development Resources

A new digital platform with Common Core-aligned resources and professional development material has been launched by Frontline Technologies. The company said its Teachwise Inspire is a low-cost alternative that will provide educators with access to thousands of downloadable resources along with teacher reviews and a library of professional development courses.

Frontline Technologies developed the platform in conjunction with Lesson Planet, which has been curating open educational resources for 15 years. Each piece of content on Teachwise Inspire undergoes Lesson Planet's credentialed-teacher review process and is given its seal of approval before it is included on the platform. Likewise, teachers who use the content on the platform also have the opportunity to rate and review the content as well.

The basic package of resources is available for $7.99 a month and for a limited time teachers can review them during a seven-day free trial.

"Teachers are currently spending an average of $500 of their own money on classroom supplies every year, and additional time outside the classroom looking for quality learning content," said Frontline Technologies Client Services Manager Mike Windsor. "We developed Teachwise Inspire to be the single source for the resources that teachers need."

Resources that are available include full-semester lesson plans, simple worksheets, an art gallery and professional development videos that cover a wide range of topics relevant to teachers. Teachwise Inspire also includes resources for substitute teachers who are often asked to prepare lesson plans on short notice.
