Why Free & Open Content?
Our team at 2Revolutions – with generous support from a national funder and through deep collaboration with a range of leading organizations – is spearheading a large-scale effort to make available free, high-quality learning content to help educators gain the knowledge and skills they need to personalize learning for students. Our thesis is simple: If we can leverage a set of high quality, free and open content and deploy it broadly, we can accelerate the transition to personalized learning.
The move toward more personalized, learner-centered models and systems is part of the solution we’re all striving toward for kids and families. Unfortunately, most of the field currently lacks readiness and capacity to do the complex work of transformation needed to realize personalized learning models and systems. The absence of consistent, high-quality content and engagement strategies makes it more difficult and inefficient for states, districts and providers to support efforts to increase field readiness and capacity. Working together with our partners, we can help address this gap.
Our growing set of partners, which includes world class organizations that are already reshaping the field, bring a rich set of content knowledge and expertise. Between Fall 2017 and Fall 2019, we will work with our partners to drive the use of promising tools, resources and materials in the field (within state agencies, districts and charter management organizations) and through provider-led design and implementation. Together, we believe we can build the field’s capacity to implement personalized learning.
A number of organizations have banded together to make this work come to life and create the best content around in each of their areas of expertise. These partners include: Center for Collaborative Education, EdSurge, Highlander Institute, High Tech High, Institute for Personalized Learning, Jobs for the Future, Next Generation Learning Challenges, reDesign and Southern New Hampshire University.
