Help us celebrate Digital Learning Day on February 17, 2016, to show how far we’ve come in advancing digital curricula (or OERs, Open Educational Resources) for students everywhere.
What exactly is digital learning? In a nutshell, digital learning is technology that helps make class work interesting, interactive and more challenging. Started in 2012, Digital Learning Day is a way to spread the word about new advances in educational technology (there’s something new every week!) so that everyone has access to high-quality digital learning opportunities no matter where they live.
We’re curious about your experience:
Did you know that Curriki is building the largest global community library of OERs?
Please tell your friends to visit Curriki, where they can find thousands of educator-vetted, openly licensed, online educational materials that teachers or other professionals have created and have made freely available to others for use, reuse, adaptation, and sharing.
Here is a sample of two collections of curated content on Curriki. Visit this page to find collections on other subjects.
Social Studies Collections
- American History
- Ancient Rome Resource Collection
- Oral History Projects in the Social Studies Classroom
- Computational Thinking Resource Collection by AT&T
- Getting Started with Java Using Alice: Complete course by Oracle Academy
- Creating Java Programs with Greenfoot: Complete course by Oracle Academy
Spread the word and let’s celebrate the widespread use of OERs at next year’s Digital Learning Day 2017!
