Continuity of Learning

Curriki has the assets and tools necessary for states, districts, schools, and individuals to achieve continuity of learning.

States, Districts & Schools

Nationwide Use

In the event of an epidemic, Curriki is well suited to serve communities in need across the country, so that students do not fall behind any more than absolutely necessary. Its "open" (free and ever-evolving) repository is built on an "open" (customizable to the public) platform. The Curriki homepage will bear the "Continuity of Learning" seal and link, which would help any user -- state official, district administrator, principal, teacher, or parent -- to locate exactly what they need or provide a home for what they want to deliver to the community.

The website accepts most file types as attachments -- Open Office and Microsoft Office documents, and PDFs are the most common -- and also allows members to create wiki- or HTML-based text documents that can be collaboratively developed and edited. The site delivers video and interactive content. Uploading is simple and fast, and is fully supported online training materials and tutorials (see How-To section, below).


State Landing Pages

We can provide a layer of landing pages at the state level. Click here to view a sample page. A state landing page will have the same design as the rest of Curriki, but serve as a space to explain Continuity of Learning, and as an entry for people using Curriki for the first time. All state landing pages will conform to a pre-designed format.

In addition to Curriki materials, the pages contain links to state and district websites. Important documents, such as PDFs of letters to parents, can be attached for download. As users become registered members, Curriki can send regular email newsletters targeted to their states' preferred uses of the site.


District Groups

A district can have a group that people in the district -- principals, teachers, parents -- can join. (This can also be done at the school level.) Non-curricular documentation, like memos or forms, are shared via the Documentation tab in the group and members message one another by using the Messages tab. In a closed group, both the Documentation tab and the Messages tab are available only to group members.

Nassau BOCES Curriculum Area Projects (CAP): This group is for Nassau County, NY districts belonging to CoSer 507.000 and 507.010. A folder structure has been established to accommodate curriculum writing projects. District writers may work independently or collaboratively to generate appropriate curriculum objectives.

San Jose Unified Technology Leadership Forum: The SJUSD technology leadership program is dedicated to the development of powerful teacher leaders and to the effective infusion of technology into classroom teaching and learning.


School Groups

Clovis Online School: Teachers and community members are developing an online charter school in Central California. This will be one place where they will share their ideas about curriculum content development and content sharing.

The ECO Charter School: The Environment Community Opportunity (ECO) Charter School in Camden, NJ, empowers students to realize their vast intellectual and social potential by teaching them to think critically and creatively, and by guiding them to unite mastered skills and content knowledge to create and pursue their own opportunities. This closed group is a location for ECO teachers to co-develop their K-4 curriculum.


School Collections

Schools can use the groups as mentioned above, or can create a member account for their school buildings. Each school can then set up "containers" for teachers, subject areas, grades, et cetera. Individual teachers can then join Curriki and insert their resources into the school's containers. This is similar to the group approach, but requires less administration. All content shared this way is publicly viewable.

Teachers

Teacher Profiles

Every member has a My Curriki profile which can provide valuable contact information. Within this profile, a teacher can contribute resources to share with a substitute or the parents of an absent student. And every member has the ability to post to a personal blog within that profile. A Curriki blog can serve as a perfect location for teachers to communicate information and ideas.


Flexible Content Types

In addition to commonly attached file types and wiki text documents created on Curriki, teachers can record videos directly from their computer (a webcam is required) that will stream from Curriki. This is a great way to model a lesson or provide pre-recorded direct instruction.


Substitute Teachers

Substitute teachers can access lessons and handouts from the classroom teachers they're filling in for. Substitutes can search for and collect additional resources from the Curriki content repository, either to supplement the classroom resources or to brush up their own skills. After a lesson is used, the substitute can leave a comment on the classroom teacher's resource to indicate how the lesson went, or insert a text document -- or even a video message -- into the teacher's collection with notes from the day.


Washington County HS Life Science

Washington County HS Life Science

This group is designed for teachers, students, and parents to access curricula for the life sciences at the high school level. These classes include Biology, Ecology, and Anatomy. This group will allow members to access class notes, worksheets, etc. in order to maintain class participation when absent from class. Parents will also be able to view current class activities.


The Parlin School

The Parlin School

This group allows a K-8 school in Massachusetts to use technology to promote collaboration between grade levels. Teachers use the group space to share ways to evaluate assessments, educational websites, and resources for each subject are.


Parents

With teachers using Curriki to post their classroom materials, parents can then access this content to help their children catch up on missed assignments or lessons due to absence. Parents are welcome to become members of Curriki, and can then rate content or leave comments for their children's teachers on specific assignments.


Homeschoolers

Homeschoolers

A forum for homeschool parents/teachers to share ideas, discuss homeschool materials and general homeschool practices and experiences, share worksheets, or plan outings.


Bethany Learning Academy Pre-Elementary Grades

Bethany Learning Academy Pre-Elementary Grades

A resource for parents to prepare their children for public school, private school, or for homeschooling.


Parenting and Strategies for the Family

Parenting and Strategies for the Family

A group set up to provide training, distribution and development of The Fusion Programme, a UK-based parenting course providing skills and strategies to deal with the daily challenges of being a parent, caregiver, children's professional.

 

 


HOW-TO RESOURCES

Curriki will develop a series of videos and guides for using the platform and content on Curriki to address local solutions for Continuity of Learning. These materials will be provided as open source materials that can be customized for use by each local, district and state entities.
