Unit 2 Explore and Compare Different Flexible Curriculum Sites

In unit 1, you went deep into one flexible curriculum site, Gooru. It helped you gain an understanding of how an online space for building and using flexible curriculum looks and works. If Gooru is just one flexible curriculum site, what are some others? In this unit, you are going to explore two other sites. Depending on the features you like and use, your teaching context, learning levels, and your technology background, you probably will prefer one site over another. This is your opportunity to evaluate which one(s) work best for you.

Unit Outcomes

  • Explore flexible curriculum web sites CK12 and TedEd (or site of your choosing)
  • Compare and contrast sites
  • Evaluate pros and cons of different sites
