Adding Interactivity to an Online Lesson
This collection was inspired by Ellen Wolpert's article about anti-bias work with younger students. Her article suggests that teachers should keep a collection of non-stereotypical photos of people doing regular things that can be referenced to stimulate class discussion or address biased language with young children.
The photos in this growing collection are organized into (Google Drive) folders inspired by categories mentioned by Ms. Wolpert: Race, Age, Physical Abilities, Gender Roles, Families/Sexual Orientation, Jobs, and Ethnicity. Each folder contains different photographs curated from various Creative Commons websites, including Unsplash, Pixabay, and Pexels. Currently there are 80 photographs in the collection. They have been assembled here for your convenience and represent many hours of searching, downloading, and editing.

This resource is a modification of the Washington Models for the Evaluation of Bias Content in Instructional Materials (2009) that is made available through OER Commons under a public domain license. This resource attempts to both update the content with more contemporary vocabulary and also to narrow the scope to evaluating still images as they are found online. It was developed as a secondary project while working on a BranchED OER grant during summer 2020. It includes an attached rubric adapted from the Washington Model (2009).
THE BLOOM'S CLASSIFICATION OF EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES IS REALLY A PATH SHOWING TO THE TEACHERS OF ALL CATEGORIES i.e. PRE PRIMARY, PRIMARY, MIDDLE SCHOOL, SECONDARY, SENIOR SECONDARY AND EVEN TEACHERS AT HIGHER EDUCATION. IT GUIDES ABOUT THE GOALS TO BE ACHIEVED IN THE CLASSROOM BY THE TEACHERS.

What is Online Learning?
This lesson and project emerged out of the course EDU 311: C, D, and E in Global Education (Culture, Diversity, and Equality). Specifically we look at the diversity of voices and cultures present in our nation’s history, which may or not be located directly in the curriculum. For this reason students, future teachers especially, need to be aware to omitted or misrepresented voices, including diversity responsibly, and be sensitive to diversity or multicultural education. The text we use is Diversity Matters (Spradlin, 2012) which delves specifically into dominant culture and minority culture helps to first frame then self identify the concept of intersectionality.
This resource was created by Marshall Payer in collaboration with Aaron Delhay as part of the 2019-20 ESU-NDE Digital Age Pedagogy Project. Educators worked with coaches to create Unit Plans promoting BlendEd Learning Best Practices. This Unit Plan is designed for High School Mathematics.

Co-Teaching FundamentalsThis 20-minute module provides foundational information about the practice of co-teaching. If completed independently, this content can be covered in approximately 20-minutes. If the module is facilitated using the guide, it may take up to one-hour.
This book is an introduction to communication, affect, and learning in the classroom. The book was originally created as a way to introduce K-12 educators to instructional communication, but has been expanded to help College/University professors and Talent Development professionals as well.

This chart will help you identify which statistical analysis to used depending on your research question.How to use: When deciding which statistics to use, first you must ask what is your research question looking for (difference or association). Then, identify what type of variable are you dealing with (Nominal, Ordinal, or Interval / Ratio), then the number of independent variables (IV) or dependent variables (DV) depending on the nature of your hypothesis. Below is a chart to help you identify which analysis to use for your hypothesis testing.
