One of the reasons I love CoScreen is that it enables sharing knowledge, especially knowledge around technology. As a developer advocate, I've spent the last decade or so working to share knowledge. One thing I've learned is that a shared context and shared tools make for a powerful, positive learning experience. In a remote-first world, CoScreen creates that context.
We've known that educators have been using CoScreen for remote learning. But when Empowr reached out to share how they use CoScreen in their mission to end racial inequalities in America, it inspired us to do a little bit more. Empowr uses CoScreen to share knowledge by teaching software development skills with remote pair programming. And as a non-profit, they are actively working to make the world a better place.
Our 2022 class of students came up with an app idea, designed the user interface, and now use CoScreen to write the code together. The CoScreen software, in some ways, is even better than if Empowr was in class.
We want to see more collaboration, more kindness, and more people using technology to make things better. And that's why CoScreen is free for non-profits. If you work for a 501(c)(3) or non-profit local NGO, you can receive free CoScreen licenses. All you need to do is fill out the application.
Thanks to all the non-profits out there. Keep up the good work!
