Description:

Working to ensure today's students are prepared to compete globally in the 21st century, Nortel* NYSE/TSX: NT? LearniT and Curriki have formed an alliance to co-ordinate their websites into one of the world's largest, free online sources of educational materials.

Nortel LearniT is the key philanthropic initiative of Nortel, designed to introduce teachers and students to the positive impacts digital technologies can have on learning. Curriki, originally founded by Sun Microsystems**, is an independent non-profit organization whose global mission is to make curricula and learning resources available to everyone online at no cost.

The Nortel LearniT-Curriki alliance provides a free forum for creating and sharing online instructional materials that integrate the latest digital technologies such as imaging and video into all subjects ranging from math to social studies to languages. For example, a teacher can bring to life a traditional lesson plan on the science of weather through digital satellite imaging, showing students how systems interact globally. The teacher can then upload it to the Nortel LearniT and Curriki web sites, making it available to any teacher anywhere.
