  • Briefly intro Curriki.Non-profit offering FREE learning resources.Our visitors and members hail from around the world! SAY PERCENTAGE OF Educators 60%Parents 13%Students 27%ADD TWIT POLLS
  • There are many sources for OERs on the web – I am sure we could name hundreds of individual sites offering a specific type of free/open content. What Curriki does is aggregate all of those sources so the highest quality is all in one place. On Curriki,  Teacher contributed content is reviewed and rated by our Curriki Review Team – subject area experts.Members also rate resources - similar to Yelp.Our visitors and members hail from around the world! SAY PERCENTAGE OF EducatorsParentsStudents
  • So we are all here to discuss how to implement the incorporation of open resources and BYOD on a school wide basis that will be at a comfortable pace for teachers and learn more about the available OER to better provide a BYOD experience to students.To be successful in that schools realize cost savings and student engagement/achievement improvements, open educational resoruces or OER, must be a key element of the implementation. Through this discussion, we hope that you will Discover how OERs broaden the use of alternatives to textbooks while maintaining instructional quality, and lowers costs.Learn how to use BYOD and OER to enhance classroom curriculum and to collaborate with other teachers.Learn how to take advantage of BYOD safely in your classrooms.
  • Play Video: http://youtu.be/nJ0nlh5FU5ATechnology in the Classroom has Changed….again.But first let’s take a quick look back at how technology innovations have worked their way into the classroom over the years. Play video.
  • DEVICE EVOLUTION SLIDES– chalkboard, projector, scantron, mimeograph, calculator, overhead, typewriter, early pc, now devices!That’s right, technology has changed over time, but we’re good at leveraging these new devices to our advantage. Integrating new devices into the way we teach and learn is nothing new. (START CLICKING THROUGH ) Look at some of the lovely pieces of technology that have had their place in our classrooms. My generation is particularly fond of the mimeograph! 
  • PC SLIDE: Teachers have always looked for ways to engage – what motivates students to pay attention, work hard, talk about what they’re learning.
  • DEVICE SLIDE: Today, that means in-class hand-held devices. It means tablets, smartphones.
  • BYOD TSHIRT SLIDE: So technology in the classroom has changed. We’re educators. We get this. We know how to do this! Let’s talk about how to leverage these new technologies to improve the curriculum and enhance learning and make teaching fun!
  • THEY GET IT. THEY LIVE IT. SLIDE:Well the kids get it too. Today’s learners are:more self-directedbetter equipped to capture informationmore reliant on feedback from peersmore inclined to collaborateSo, the devices are in the room, what’s next?Content! Open Educational Resources.
  • For anyone who is new to the concept, Open educational resources (OER) are digital materials that can be re-used for teaching, learning, and research. They are made available for free through open licensing instead of copyright, which allows very flexible use and reuse of the materials.Open Educational Resources (OER) are learning materials that are freely available to use, remix, and redistribute. OER have Creative Commons licenses stating specifically how the material can be used, reused, adapted, and shared. (Wikipedia article) BUT, for OERs to be fully embraced in our schools they have to be far better at doing some key tasks/ they have to be better at doing some really important things. better than the printed textBetter than generic web searchBetter than a local network
  • So. Questions.How do I find stuffKnow its accurate and high quality?How do I organize and categorize it?What’s the deal with sharing?
  • Let’s start with quality.On Curriki, you will find two types of content, teacher contributed and partner contributed. Teacher contributed content is reviewed and rated by our Curriki Review Team – subject area experts who review content based on a rubric, which is published on curriki for you.Members also rate resources - similar to Yelp. Give a star rating and make comments. It ensures that educators have a voice in determining what’s high quality and what’s not. So you can be confident that the reviewed resources are high quality. Can’t get that by googling!There are many sources for free content on the web – you can go around to all of these individual sites that specific type of free content. Math videos, science lessons, etexbooks etc. So What Curriki does, is aggregate all of those sources so the highest quality is all in one place.
  • Curriki seeks the highest quality content from those sites – we have content partnerships with NROC, NASA, Khan Academy, Math for America, Lincoln Center Institute, and many more.
  • It’s phenomenal to see hundreds …thousands of rated resources right in front of you…none of the ads or noise on search engines…no irrelevant items in search results. You can see all the highest rated resources first! Then you can refine in just seconds.
  • It’s unbelieveably great!Way better than a generic search engine.Phenomenal for sharing & assigning. If you want to assign a resource to class…you can do that (show social tools)You want to tell parents to try this animated language activity with their first grader, you can do that!
  • It’s a wonderful way to get published. Not only can you share stuff with teachers you know personally, but you can publish your creations, publish your written project plans, units, entire courses to the global education community. This means a teacher in Berkley can use a lesson published in San Diego. A teacher in NY can find an algebra project published in TX. US MapA teacher in India can use a course published in the US. Globe
  • It means that schools, districts, regions can have free web space to collaboratively design & Publish curricula. http://www.curriki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Group_NassauBOCESGroup/
