|“Get to Know the OER Project”
Get to know the OEER project before you take the plunge into the full course. Alternatively, integrate these short 4 week, skills-based courses into an existing class program. OER has two exciting online short courses to introduce you and your students to the benefits of features that have made these courses so effective.
Explore the power of data in this standalone course. Students are constantly bombarded with representations of data. These charts and maps can be confusing and misleading. As data becomes a bigger part of our lives—just one result of the Information Revolution—students need to learn to be critical consumers of information. That’s what Project X is all about. Project X culminates in a final presentation in which students use historical data to predict the future and offer solutions to some of humanity’s biggest challenges.
Project Score is a set of activities that provide specific rubric-based strategies to address particular aspects of writing. In addition to the rubric-based strategies, you and your students are given access to Score, the OER Project’s free, automated essay-scoring platform that uses the Score Writing Rubric to evaluate student work. Project Score activities have been designed to work seamlessly with the Score platform and can be easily incorporated into your classroom instruction.
