Tennessee Digital Resources Library Launches with OER For High School Students
From The Tennessean:
The Tennessee Digital Resources Library, announced Tuesday, is a partnership between the Tennessee Schools Board Association and other groups to help districts focus not on buying textbooks, but instead technology for classrooms, according to a news release. The catalog will be available on iTunesU.
The Tennessee Digital Resources Library is designed to help school districts use and share open educational resources, which are aligned to Tennessee standards, thus helping teachers as they deliver content in the classrooms, according to the release.
From the Knoxville News Sentinel:
Tennessee high school students will have access to digital course materials in 14 subjects this school year for free after multiple groups came together to offer a newly created online catalog.
Beginning in August 2015, teachers from across the state curated digital learning materials for the following 14 high school courses: Algebra I and II; Biology; Chemistry; Economics; English I, II, III and IV; Geometry; Government; Physical Science; and U.S. and World History.
