Digital Content Warehouse

Creating Sustainable equity in K-12 education through Open Education Resources (OER)

Open educational resources are freely available materials that can be downloaded, edited, and shared to better serve all students.

Openly licensed educational resources can increase equity by providing all students, regardless of zip code, access to high quality learning materials that have the most up-to-date and relevant content.

Ensuring Quality

Our content is created in partnership with the educators we serve to help all students succeed.  We train educators in how to create high quality digital curriculum, according to the standards established by iNACOL. The educators apply their expertise and understanding of their students' interests and needs to develop content that is uniquely engaging, often in partnership with local businesses and community.  We then work with our members to run a curation process that ensures a rich, high quality, repository of content that evolves to ensure the materials stay up-to date and relevant to benefit all students.

Promoting Culture

We help educators share their knowledge to build on each others work.  We store all the content created in a central repository and help districts transfer that content into the Learning Management System they use for easy access.  All content is fully customizable allowing educators and their students to cultivate agency and ownership over their own learning.  With the building blocks of the core curriculum in place, educators can focus on honing their student-centered instructional practices and on co-creating content with students that is authentic, contextual, and relevant.

Reducing Costs

Because districts and charter networks can build upon the content created by their peer organizations and supplement content leveraging their existing staff, they remove the need for paying costly licensing fees.  Districts and networks have the option of contributing new content, curation time, or modest fees to subsidize the overall maintenance of the repository, reducing the burden for all.
