Rick Fredkin, founder and CEO of Massachusetts start-up, Eduporium, sat down with Jeff Bradbury of the TeacherCast Network to discuss how they help educators improve teaching by recommending the best technology for them. The two discuss Eduporium's fruitful online store, Educator Discount, and how they help teachers conquer technology.

We’re really a one-stop shop for educators

Eduporium is an online reseller of today’s top STEM and STEAM tools all in one place. Recently, their founder and CEO, Rick Fredkin, appeared on the TeacherCast podcast with well-known educator and podcaster, Jeff Bradbury, to discuss the company and their efforts in reshaping K-12 education with technology.

Joining Fredkin and Bradbury on the podcast was fellow educator, Sam Patterson. They discussed in detail the products in the Eduporium store and the various services and benefits the company offers to teachers.

“We’re really a one-stop shop for educators,” said Fredkin about his company. We know that teachers do not have a lot of money and they do not have a lot of time, so we wanted to put the best of the EdTech world all in one place, giving them access to just about anything.”

Eduporium also vets and tests these products themselves at their office in Watertown, Mass.

“We’re constantly looking for what’s new and what’s interesting,” said Fredkin. “Previously, teachers who wanted a variety of different tools would obviously have to shop at a number of different places. Now, they can just come to us and they see everything they need right there. Plus, they can get up to 20 percent off every purchase using our Educator Discount program.

Eduporium is constantly looking for new technologies to add to their store. If it’s got a tech component and can be used in experiential education, there’s more than a good chance they would like to feature it. Vendors and anyone else with an innovative tech tool that can be used in the classroom, library, or makerspace should contact Eduporium to learn how they can be featured on their site. To do so, you can send an email to info(at)eduporium(dot)com.

Once it’s a part of the store, it will be visible online to the many educators who visit Eduporium. They give people with a product an additional platform to better the chances that it ends up in the hands of committed educators and curious children.

For teachers, Eduporium makes the entire ordering process easier. They will have an actual conversation with you and find out exactly what it is you are trying to accomplish then come back with specific product recommendations that will fit both your teaching needs and your budget. They also create customized bundles based on educator requests and accept purchase orders to go along with the Educator Discount.

“The bundle option is great,” said Patterson. “This way I don’t have to have 25 kids doing the same exact thing when they’re working with the technology.”

At Eduporium, there’s a very good chance they will have what you are looking for and, if not, they’ll probably make it available shortly thereafter.

“We don’t try to carry absolutely everything,” said Fredkin. “We’re vetting the products and testing them, so we’re able to narrow the selection down to technology that’s productive.”

For those looking to take advantage of Eduporium’s products and services, Fredkin says that the best way to do this is to simply get in touch. Anyone interested can reach out to Eduporium by phone at 1 (877) 252-0001, email at info(at)eduporium(dot)com, or through their website, which is simply http://www.eduporium.com.
