Access Free Digital Resources
Curriculum Foundry provides districts access to a repository of vetted, standards-aligned Open Educational Resources (OER) and other free digital resources. The repository includes content for all grade levels K-12 aligned to one of four subject areas: math, ELA, science, and social studies. Search functionality makes it easy to find content by standard, grade, subject, and item type. Districts can add digital content they have created to the repository as well. Curriculum Foundry allows districts to add their own digital resources and third-party content to the repository such as SAS® Curriculum Pathways®.
Organize and Build Custom Curriculum
Using Curriculum Foundry’s comprehensive set of tools, districts can build digital curriculum using the content from the repository. They can create lessons, units, and even entire courses.
Share Content with Teachers and Students
Once districts have created their own curriculum, they can export content via Thin Common Cartridge™ v1.3 (TCC v1.3) to learning management systems that support TCC imports. If a district does not have an existing LMS, the content can be delivered using the Learning.com Platform. Teachers can easily assign curriculum to students by using the Learning.com Platform. They can also supplement district-created curriculum with additional content from the repository to meet the specific needs of their students.
Coming Soon! Google Drive™ Integration
Ready for the fall of 2015, Curriculum Foundry will integrate with Google Drive™. Districts using Google Apps for Education™ will be able to share the lessons, units, and courses they have created in Curriculum Foundry through Google Drive. Students and teachers will be able to launch the content from Google Drive or Google Classroom™. Districts will also be able to add content they have created in Google Drive to its district’s library in Curriculum Foundry for future use.
