Curriculum Foundry Named ISTE 2016 Best of Show
Pioneering Solution Helps School Districts Make the Transition to Digital Curriculum
Portland, Oregon (July 20, 2016) – Curriculum Foundry, Learning.com’s pioneering solution for seamlessly accessing, organizing and sharing digital content, is a winner of “Tech & Learning” magazine’s ISTE 2016 Best of Show award.
“We developed Curriculum Foundry to provide districts with the right tools for using digital content to personalize learning for their students, save their teachers time and stretch precious budget dollars through more effectively leveraging OER,” said Learning.com CEO, Keith Oelrich. “With more than 500 companies exhibiting at ISTE 2016, it is a tremendous honor to have our solution named as Best of Show.”
For the third consecutive year, “Tech & Learning” honored distinguished products at ISTE. The winners were selected from products showcased at ISTE 2016 in Denver by an anonymous panel of educator judges. The judges evaluated areas such as quality and effectiveness, ease of use and creative use of solutions to select the technologies that they believe will have the most impact in the classroom and deserve to be named Best of Show. Curriculum Foundry will be featured in the August 2016 issue of the magazine.
Using Curriculum Foundry’s comprehensive set of tools, educators can build learning objects, lessons, units and even entire courses. Curriculum Foundry also provides districts with a searchable repository of high-quality, vetted and tagged open educational resources (OER) and other free digital resources. The repository includes content for all K-12 grade levels, aligned to one of the four core subject areas: math, English language arts, science and social studies. Authors can search by standard, grade, subject and item to identify just the right resource.Districts can add digital content they have created to their repository as well.
Curriculum Foundry also integrates with a variety of learning platforms, including Canvas, Schoology and Google Apps for Education. And coming in fall 2016, it will include robust assessment authoring and management functionality, leveraging a deep integration and partnership with Learnosity.
