Building the Promise of the Common Core Together

OER and the Spirit of the Common Core

We provide educators with open source tools and resources needed to actively engage teachers in making education content localized and adapted to their own environments. Today, this means also being able to successfully build a practice around the Common Core. ISKME’s Open Author platform and evaluation rubrics allow curriculum leaders to gather Common Core aligned exemplars and frameworks for their teachers, while at the same time, allowing teachers to build and share high quality OER. Open education tools and resources provide educators with flexibility in instructional resource design necessary to build and sustain instructional shifts and practice around the Common Core.
