Project
EDCITE: Evaluating Digital Content for Instructional and Teaching Excellence will implement a digital content evaluation system to help schools to move from print to digital classroom materials in order to increase personalized learning. Comprehensive evaluation methods and a web-based system will be developed along with professional development to help teachers to learn how to review digital resources to determine the most suitable and cost-efficient programs for their districts.
Project
College Ready Ohio aims to expand access to college-level courses to high school students across the states via mobile learning, open digital sources, and College Credit Plus opportunities. By studying both online and in-person teaching and learning formats, different approaches can be examined relating to how K-12 teachers and students best adapt to new or different teaching and learning strategies. This project is led by Educational Service Center of Central Ohio partnering with ten K-12 school districts, The Ohio State University (OSU), Geauga County Educational Service Center and the Ohio STEM Learning Network.
