Search and Copy Curricula Added to TeacherEase
Elmhurst, IL (January 20, 2014) - To help teachers use technology-rich activities in the classroom, a searchable curriculum library has been added to TeacherEase. Easily find free engaging content: lessons, quizzes, videos, web pages, online games, etc. Resources are rated by the community so the best curricula top the search results. To get started, about 8500 professionally generated resources have been loaded from our partners: Sheppard Software, TeacherTube, Science4us, and Vocabulary Spelling City. To contribute to the community, teachers can share resources they’ve built or found on the Internet (as permitted by copyright).
“We’re excited to partner with content publishers like TeacherTube to provide the best learning management system to our users,“ says Mike Xakellis, President of Common Goal Systems. “We continue to add functionality that makes TeacherEase a superior choice for technology-rich classrooms. As teachers strive to transform education and develop 21st century skills; easy access to quality and engaging resources will help teachers significantly.”
