Free Online Education Sources Celebrating Open Education Week

by Paula on March 12, 2013

THE POST BELOW MAY CONTAIN AFFILIATE LINKS. FOR MORE DETAILS, PLEASE SEE OUR DISCLOSURE NOTICE.

As a parent who strives to cultivate curiosity in my child, I try to find teachable moments in every day life.  Sometimes it’s doing a quick math problem to figure out how many laps were going to be raced in Sunday’s NASCAR race (in the most recent race at Las Vegas, it was 267 1.5 mile laps to equal 400.5 miles) or maybe it’s having her figure out how much a cookie will be at her favorite fast food restaurant—after she added in tax!  (And ummm, is there an easy way to calculate sales tax on a partial dollar amount?)

I want her to wonder about everything!  Why is the sky blue?  Why is Mars red?  I want her to also be able to find out the answers for herself.  Experiment with Google.  Learn researching skills.  Know what is a reputable source and what isn’t.

 

12 Open Educational Resources from InformationWeek

 

Just found this phenomenal listing of 12 Open Educational Resources from Information Week, a special slideshow they compiled in recognition of Open Education Week, March 11-15, 2013.  (Who knew there was such a thing?!)

 

Khan Academy logo

 

While I was familiar with some of these opportunities, like Khan Academy, I wasn’t aware of others.  Which means, my curiosity has been piqued and I’ll be doing some research.

Why?  Because I’m curious too!  Because I’m firm believer that if you stop learning, you may as well be dead.  And I’m not ready for that now and hopefully never will be!

Tell me something you learned today!
