Aboriginal Hand Print
(art + history; art + social studies)
"One old man in Arnhem Land remembered being carried as a child on his father's shoulders as his father climbed up a log leaning against a rock wall. His father then sprayed his hand with red ochre against the rock, leaving a stencil he could still recognize many years later. The main function of the stencils was to record people's presence and association with a site." — Aboriginal Art Online

The stenciled hand print and aboriginal style drawings help children to relate to the man from the Australian Aboriginal Culture stated above, while helping them to understand the use of line in art. A black paper with white splattered paint was used, but white paper with red (ochre) splattered paint would make a nice impression also. Construction paper crayons make bright, bold, linear designs around the hand stencil.

Exploring Climate Science With Virtual Reality, a Teacher/Scientist Partnership experience. High school teachers engage with working scientists and engineers to for content learning for climate science and virtual reality and engage in follow-up sessions with professional development facilitators to develop pedagogical expertise for use in creating formative classroom tasks that are formative and productive. It is a three day initial workshop with four follow-up days to
1) deepen teacher understanding by learning with climate scientists to understand climate science standards content knowledge
2) increase awareness and knowledge of the use of virtual reality devices in climate science learning
30 to co-develop a climate science simulation game for use on Oculus Go devices with teachers, their students and a virtual reality scientist/engineer team
4) to develop and implement embedded formative classroom tasks that
complement climate science learning by using a relevant, place based phenomena, and provide insights into student thinking and productive next steps in learning.

In the study of Child Development, physical growth is a complex process which entails learning about children's bodily movements and abilities. More specifically, gross motor skills are a type of physical abilities in which large muscle movements are exercised by young children during the early years of life. This is glimpse of what typical physical abilities children possess between ages 3 to 5.

List of open education resources online

A guide to free and open source education.

Nearly every week, if not every day, there are more and more open source and open educational resources available and accessible to us. It's impossible to ignore. It also seems impossible to keep pace with the sheer volume.

Despite this, I will attempt here to give a comprehensive listing of many helpful, accessible, amazing open education resources. (There will inevitably be some left out, but here goes!)

To begin, it's good to understand that there are open resources for almost every age, grade, and subject:

elementary, middle, and high school students
higher, tertiary, and vocational education
special needs and gifted students
public or private school students
homeschoolers or unschoolers
parents, teachers, and administrators
Where open education is being used
Prime Minister David Cameron announced in February 2013 that more UK universities are joining Futurelearn, the UK's first provider of free, open online courses (with the British Library). In both the UK and US, there are hundreds or thousands of free, open online courses being used; increasingly we are seeing other countries, like Brazil and India, start to become heavy users and hotbeds for open source and open educational resources too.

Unesco has advocated for the use of open source and open educational resources worldwide. And, in December 2012 a UN trade group said that governments should seize open source opportunities and become less reliant on large-scale software manufacturers.

Why open source?
All educators and administrators, and hey, students too, should read and pass along this short note on Why should open source software be used in schools? Information like this helps begin the process of understanding, gets people on board, and can make the difference between action and talking.

Open education resources
OSS Watch provides tips for selecting open source, or for procuring free or open software.

SchoolForge and SourceForge are good places to find, create, and publish open software. SourceForge, for one, has millions of downloads each day.

Open Source Education Foundation and Open Source Initiative, and other organization like these, help disseminate knowledge.

Creative Commons has a number of open projects from Khan Academy to Curriki where teachers and parents can find educational materials for children or learn about Creative Commons licenses. Also, they recently launched the School of Open that offers courses on the meaning, application, and impact of "openness."

Numerous open or open educational resource databases and search engines exist. Some examples include:

OEDb: over 10,000 free courses from universities as well as reviews of colleges and rankings of college degree programs
Open Tapestry: over 100,000 open licensed online learning resources for an academic and general audience
OER Commons: over 40,000 open educational resources from elementary school through to higher education; many of the elementary, middle, and high school resources are aligned to the Common Core State Standards
Open Content: a blog, definition, and game of open source as well as a friendly search engine for open educational resources from MIT, Stanford, and other universities with subject and description listings
Academic Earth: over 1,500 video lectures from MIT, Stanford, Berkeley, Harvard, Princeton, and Yale
JISC: Joint Information Systems Committee works on behalf of UK higher education and is involved in many open resources and open projects including digitizing British newspapers from 1620-1900!

Individuals (which include OERs)

Librarian Chick: everything from books to quizzes and videos here, includes directories on open source and open educational resources
K-12 Tech Tools: OERs, from art to special education
Web 2.0: Cool Tools for Schools: audio and video tools
Web 2.0 Guru: animation and various collections of free open source software
Livebinders: search, create, or organize digital information binders by age, grade, or subject (why re-invent the wheel?)
Legal help

New Media Rights is trying to help digital creators use public domain or open materials legally. They have guides on how to use free and open software materials in various fields.
Free, non-profit resources
WatchKnowLearn and Good Sites for Kids are examples of non-profit organizations that operate in an open way, but are technically not open source. Keep an eye out for them as well to help you along the open education way.

SCILLSS Self-Evaluation Protocol of Assessment Systems
Rating

Strengthening Claims-based Interpretations and Uses of Local and Large-scale Science Assessment Scores (SCILLSS)
This self-evaluation protocol provides a framework for educators at a school, school district, or local system level to use in considering how to best implement an assessment system. It is designed to focus on assessments that are state- or district-mandated, developed by an independent test vendor, and selected for use within a school throughout the school year. All tests that yield scores used for any of these purposes are part of a school’s or district’s assessment system and should be evaluated on a regular basis.
This protocol is meant to support reviews for each assessment in a system and for a local assessment system, as a whole. Educators at a school or school district level can use and modify this protocol as needed to best suit their needs.
