Build capacity for local and regional decision making regarding instructional materials, including digital curriculum resources

The California Department of Education, State Board of Education, and education stakeholders should develop direction and measures to ensure alignment with the state curriculum and to support local school district decision making.

These efforts should ensure flexibility and variety in formats and allow for the use of open education resources.

Open educational resources (OER) are any resources available at little or no cost that can be used for teaching, learning, or research.

By providing educators with new access to educational material, open resources have the potential to spur pedagogical innovation, introducing new alternatives for effective teaching.

Engage students in exploring real-world issues and solving authentic problems using digital tools and resources.

Design and develop digital age learning experiences and assessments

Develop technology-enriched learning environments that enable all students to pursue their individual curiosities and become active participants in setting their own educational goals, managing their own learning, and assessing their own progress.

Model digital age work and learning

Aligning the states curriculum with digital resources can have many positive effects on teaching methods and student performance.

Our 21st century learners need more than academic intelligence, they need a pathway to become creative innovators of their own world.

Parents, teachers, educators, and policy makers need to influence and inspire our learners to explore the real world.

Say no more to conventional-limited-narrow teaching and learning.

Teach, work and learn in the digital age.
