"What we are missing in education is not the resources -- but the creativity to make the most of the resources we have."
The first example of the use of the term 'teacherpreneur' I can find online is by Vicki Davis as we completed our first Flat Classroom Project

Presentation Title: Lead the World
Presentation Description: Students are the greatest textbook ever written for each other, yet, many schools close the book on learning outside classroom walls. After five years of global collaborative classroom excellence, this presentation first uses voices from the keynoters, students, and teachers around the world that have been part of the Flat Classroom projects and conferences to share how education has fundamentally changed through a beautiful medley of voices. Then, hear from Vicki Davis, co-founder, about the 7 principles that can take your classroom global and the current challenges and misconceptions surrounding what it means to globalize your classroom. We hope you’ll join this journey of learning and thank all of our keynoters, students, and teachers, for sharing their voice in this move towards excellence in global education."

"Welcome to Collaborative Writing in the Classroom, a project sponsored by Eye On Education featuring Vicki Davis, Cool Cat Teacher.
Collaborative Writing in the Classroom, scheduled to be released in 2012, will provide a showcase of best practices from across the country that improve student writing using tools like wikis and Google docs.
In her book, Vicki will pull from her extensive experience on her award-winning wikis and global collaborations to show how collaborative writing can be simple and doable. She wants to hear your stories, too! After all, Eye On Education isn't just a book publisher but a community of educators who want real ways to improve their classrooms.
We are asking for your collaborative writing stories!
We invite you to submit an example from your classroom that demonstrates how your students have used wikis, Google Docs, or other tools for the purpose of collaborative content creation.
Vicki and our editors will review your stories as potential case studies in the book! If your story is chosen for the book, we will get in touch with you. We'll also send you a complimentary copy of Collaborative Writing in the Classroom when it's published! Or, if you're struggling with Common Core State Standards and know this book is for you, let us know that too! We'll keep you posted!
