"Here are his top recommendations for curricula:
ck12.org. This site has been around for years, and for good reason – it meets the needs of K-12 teachers. In addition to the usual assortment of OER content, teachers will find full lesson plans that are easily incorporated into classrooms.
edmodo.com. Also a pioneer among OER sites, Edmodo offers a time-saving “Spotlight” search to help teachers find specific OER elements.
opened.com. Turn to this OER for the greatest range of assessments available anywhere.
gooru.org. Not only does this site provide lesson plans, it offers full courses that can be downloaded and used – and they’re all free!
curriki.org. Also an early OER resource, curriki.org provides content and also makes it easy for educators to share their OER-based lessons.
Educators interested in learning about a free, device-agnostic platform for creating OERs, monitoring students in real time and assessing student artifacts can join Soloway and colleague Cathie Norris for the ISTE Professional Learning Series webinar 'Digital Lessons to Reap the Benefits of Your 1:1 Classroom' April 5.
