Recent Projects

Reading + Writing Professional Development

As part of a 10-week LINCS event focused on integrating free and open education resources within reading and writing instruction, CrowdED Learning developed this open professional development resource that can be used by instructors, curriculum specialists, and professional developers infuse reading and writing curriculum and instruction with a wide variety of free and open resources and tools.

Digital Skills Library

Throughout 2018, CrowdED participated with teachers across Illinois as part of the Illinois Digital Learning Lab. Teachers explored different ways to integrate technology tools into their instruction. As part of the lab, CrowdED Learning worked to develop a library of go-to resources for helping learners digital skills. Over time, we will expand this to include activities that support application of digital skills and problem solving in technology-rich environments.

Khan Academy Math Practice Sets Aligned to the CCRS + TABE 11/12

In an effort to support learners and instructors as they transition to the new TABE 11/12 Tests, CrowdED Learning has pulled together correlations of Khan Academy activity sets—over 2,000 of them—to the TABE 11/12 test blueprints. This work will be incorporated into the SkillBlox learning plan generation tool help instructors develop personalized learning plans for students that integrate Khan Academy content.

Tier 2 Vocabulary Curriculum

Appalachian State University developed a first-class, free and downloadable curriculum for teaching 195 Tier 2 (academic vocabulary) words to adult learners. We decided to pick up where their great work left off, developing a set of 39 Quizlet decks so learners have interactive, mobile friendly options for studying vocabulary anywhere.
