Grant supports Common Core-aligned digital resources

10/21/2011 1:18:16 PM

The Pearson Foundation today announced a partnership with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to create a full series of digital instructional resources.  Online courses in math and reading/English language arts will offer a coherent and systemic approach to teaching the new Common Core State Standards. 
 
Over the next three years, the Pearson Foundation will develop 24 courses covering math for grades K-10 and reading/English language arts for grades K-12. 
 
The courses will be made available in 2013, before the Common Core Standards are implemented. Funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will support four courses to be offered as free, open educational resources, with the intent of widening access and spurring innovation around the Common Core.
