OpenEd and ISTE Student Standards 2

OpenEd is a directory of open educational resources (free) that can be browsed or searched by standards, grade level, or keyword.  This could save some time searching the web for quality resources since they have already curated many videos, assessments, and activities into one place.  OpenEd recently added the ability to share the resources indexed through the site with Google Classroom.  When you find a resource you want to share with a class, click the Classroom link at the top of the resource listing and a window will open giving you the option to create an announcement or assignment and select which class you want to receive a link to this resource.  You will then have the ability to title the announcement and assignment and include any instructions before posting to Classroom.

I am sharing the article Know the ISTE Standards for Students, Standard 2: Communication and Collaboration in preparation for the EdTech Chef Challenge on January 4, 2016.  Don’t forget to submit your content standards to Mel by December 1.
