Now more than ever, educators need quality free resources. CrowdED Learning can help.
One Library. Thousands of Resources.
Through our most recent EdTech Maker Space - part of the Digital Resilience in the American Workforce (DRAW) initiative - adult educators worked collaboratively to curate digital skills activities from a variety of high-quality, widely used sources. Finally, you can find the right resource for the digital skills you need to teach or learn...all in one place. Check out the library!
Mobile Leveled Reading
Our first EdTech Maker Space resulted in over 1,000 customizable, mobile-friendly reading resources (and a mobile reading app!), built using the popular Reading Skills for Today's Adults leveled reading library!
Each story includes a Quizlet study set to practice vocabulary.
Each story includes a Google Forms quiz to check comprehension.
Each story, study set, and quiz is pulled together in a Wakelet.

Khan Academy is the most widely used OER within adult education....
...but many educators note it is difficult for learners to know which lessons they should study.
The Florida Literacy Coalition worked to tackle this challenge by building a GED Video Math Prep website designed for learner self-study that organizes relevant Khan Academy videos into topics and subtopics.
CrowdED Learning partnered with FLC to take this great site and turn it into a free app! Now, learners can access learning on a mobile device or computer, track their work within the app, and launch directly into Khan Academy!
