Two weeks ago, I attended the OER Summit at my AIU. This summit was to bring awareness about Open Educational Resources for teachers. Many teachers have curriculum that they end up re-inventing or supplementing. The idea of OERs is to save money and empower teachers.
A senior director from CK-12 was there to talk about their resource. CK-12 offers Math and Science books that teachers can remix. They can remove content, reorder, and even add their own resources. I was also impressed with the site's Simulations, PLIX (Play Learn Interact Xplore) modules and adaptive practice. (Click on the images below)
CK-12 is 100% free, and students and teachers can choose to login with a Google account. The site also offers an app for both Apple and Android devices. Teachers can create custom assignments for students based on skills needed.
If you do not teach math and science, but are interested in creating your own curriculum, you can take advantage of the site and construct your own Flexbook.
Have a great Memorial Day weekend!
