If you have not used Curriki you will be in for a surprise. This is more than your average website for teachers. Curriki is built on the , an open source development platform and "Next Generation Wiki" application developed in Java. You can search the Curriki databases for thousands of learning resources including lesson plans, videos, worksheets, multimedia activities and full courses.
** You can use the advanced search to find materials top-rated by members or by content area experts.
*** You can publish your own materials for the world to share by adding content in any format.
**** Collaborate around the world with other educators, or create your own personal learning network.
Curriki is the result of work done for GELC - the Global Education and Learning Community - an online project started by Sun Microsystems to develop works for education in a collaborative effort. The leadership team consists of people with a long-time commitment to exploring the use of technology to improve education. It includes academic and technology experts in the field of education, CEO's and authors.
Watch how lessons are reviewed, using their All About Reviewed resources video.
I hope you enjoy using this new resource in your daily searching online. Some of the courses could be incorporated into an individualised learning plan, so this is exciting for our teachers, parents and students.
