In her November 2015 article, Patricia Gomes states that “Millions of teachers are avid buyers and sellers in a booming number of marketplaces for teacher-made materials.” Gomes goes on to share that “A recent EdSurge survey identified 9 marketplaces where teachers can sell their creations. Another 6 allow them to share and download resources for free or are open education resources platforms. “
The author explains that “For many teachers working on thin salaries, these online shops offer a source of additional income.”
The marketplaces listed in the article are Educents, Teachers Pay Teachers, Teacher’s Notebook, Teachwise , TES and Share My Lesson.
Read the full article to find the arguments why Gomes concludes with the following statement “Teaching is an art. And while the profession pays teachers modestly for their performance in classrooms, online marketplaces offer them an opportunity to be compensated both financially and socially”
