Jan Plourde visits The Wealthy Speaker Show and dialogues with host Paul Lawrence Vann about an amazing and creative learning technology. She is a Boston area passionate educator and entrepreneur who champions quality learning and teaching.
Tapcin is the culmination of the many common threads of Jan's life. As an early childhood education teacher, founder of a nonprofit literacy program, and director of Developmental Teaching (Tapcin’s parent company), Jan has dedicated her life to improving how children learn.
Jan envisioned the idea of an online lesson planning tool in 2009 upon observing young new teachers using emerging technologies routinely to communicate and share ideas. She realized that to keep pace with the new generation of teachers, new approaches were needed to inspire and support them.
Along with Jay Kashavan, she embarked on the Tapcin journey, learning the ins and outs of being an Apple software developer as they created the ultimate online lesson planning tool. In the fall of 2014, they launched Tapcin and the Tapcin Teachable Moments campaign to assist teachers who used at least 50% of their time devoted to lesson planning, thus enabling them to connect with students in those “teachable moments” when children are fully engaged and excited about learning.
