Repository for district-approved lesson plans & other teaching materials

Overview

SUMMARY

Curriculum Foundry gives teachers access to curricula and repositories of teaching materials created or vetted by district administrators. District personnel uses resources in the tool to create courses, units, or lessons; this content is then shared with individual teachers throughout the district. Curriculum Foundry is available for a per student, per year license.

GOALS

Curriculum Foundry provides teachers throughout a district access to repositories of teaching materials and curriculum created and/or vetted by administrators. The product was created to allow teachers to more easily find high quality teaching resources to use in their classrooms.

APPROACH

Use of Curriculum Foundry starts at the district level. The tool comes already populated with tens of thousands of digital, K-12 resources across math, English/language arts, social studies and science. Districts can also add content it has already created to the repository, or bring in third-party content from other existing tools. Districts then use the materials available through the tool to build custom curricula - courses, units, or individual lessons. All content on the tool is searchable to ensure the ease of finding the right instructional materials.

These new combinations of resources are then shared with teachers throughout the district, or in particular schools. Resources can be shared through an existing LMS, or by using the built in platform on Learning.com. According to the company, Curriculum Foundry will be able to integrate with Google Docs starting in Fall of 2015.

Teachers, in turn, assign the curricula to an individual, groups of students, or to an entire class. These assignments can be customized for each student with additional materials from the Curriculum Foundry repository.

IMPLEMENTATION

Curriculum Foundry can be accessed through any modern browser. Content can be exported to an existing LMS system via Thin Common Cartridge.

PRICING

Curriculum Foundry is available for a per student, per year license. The decision to purchase the product would be made by a district administrator or school leader. According to the company, pricing “varies significantly based on district size.”
