(It’s not happening yet…) I just sent this email to Power in Numbers: Have you seen   in geogebra?  It’s a whole BOOK for GED …  The “Isle of Mathematics” looks to have a trove of good things, and Geogebra is CC-BY … And I just saw a cool webinar (only because students aren’t here […]

A site full of virtual manipulates, which seem to be javascript 😉 🙂 Free, but not “OER.” The Open Education people seem to be mostly about Changing How Institutions Do THings.   Power In Numbers has been about curating and sharing OER for adult ed.   This is at such a smaller scale!

Noted on Twitter that Eureka Math tweeted that parents might need support and replied about my Friday experience (thinking they might have read it since I tagged it).   I hope they hire somebody to engage the parents who maybe aren’t in New York  in those support materials. I’m even wondering whether one of the […]

Open Educational Resources: it’s worth the effort

September 18, 2017


I love that teachers are sharing their enhancements to Illustrative Mathematics.   This is what the “open” in “Open Educational Resources” is all about!   The IM lessons are licensed CC-BY — “attribution.”   Everybody can use them, revise them, even use them commercially as long as credit is given. The sharing process completely lacks any […]
