Let's Build a Video Library App Together!

CrowdED Learning is currently running a crowdsourcing experiment to see how many learning videos we can accumulate by the end of the next year. The premise is simple:

Calling All Instructors! Do you use these (or other) free reading and writing resources with your learners?

CrowdED Learning is excited to be leading an upcoming September LINCS event centered around using our soon-to-be live tool—SkillBlox—to incorporate really great free and open education resources into your reading, writing, and language instruction. To maximize the impact of the event, we want input from you!

CrowdED Learning—Here are a BUNCH of CCRS and TABE 11/12 Aligned Resources!

Hey everyone!

I'm excited to announce CrowdED Learning has released alignment documents for a handful of high quality free and open educational resources, with alignments both to the CCRS and TABE 11/12!

Math excitement here :)

I've just accepted a job offer with Illustrative Math as a Students with Disabilities Supports Writer for High School Curriculum  ... and Illustrative math is an Open Educational Resource so yes, I can share :)   (I included their middle school exponents lessons in my Adult Ed OER project with Power In Numbers here: )   

Open Pedagogy

I found this podcast intriguing as using open pedagogy in our instruction is challenging. Interesting that there may be some ways to encourage teachers to use open pedagogy. Thoughts?

Is Open Content Enough? Where OER Advocates Say the Movement Must Go Next

Questions to the Field: Integrating OER and Free Resources in Adult Education

Last month at a meeting with distance learning adult educators from around the country, I had the opportunity to present on OER integration and share CrowdED Learning’s SkillBlox initiative. My copresenter from Pennsylvania walked through the evolution they have gone through with their GED distance learning program, and how that led to a model strategy for integrating free and open education resources into their curriculum.

I've got a little project going...

I found out about Open Educational Resources -- " free and openly licensed educational materials that can be used for teaching, learning, research, and other purposes"  right here at LINCS. I was part of several projects, creating and curating OER for Math.

  I think it's time to scale up!

The OER course was created by American Institutes for Research (AIR). The course is facilitated by a highly experienced LINCS Facilitator. Registration is limited to 15 participants.
