WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION:

WISELearn is a statewide initiative through the Department of Public Instruction. Part of this portion of the WISELearn project is creating a digital content repository of highly-vetted, standards-aligned digital content to include lesson plans, videos, simulations, games, project- or problem-based activities, etc. Learn more about WISELearn here: http://dpi.wi.gov/wiselearn

Each WISELearn Digital Content Curation workshop will bring in participants in specific content areas (current focus is on mathematics, science and ELA which will expand as the project progresses) to curate digital content and process it through standards-aligned rubrics, with emphasis on ACHIEVE OER, EQUIP and content standards. Content meeting outlined criteria will then be held for a final content review and uploaded into the WISELearn Educator Portal Digital Content Repository, making it available to all Wisconsin educators, free of charge.

Prior to the face-to-face workday, participants are expected to complete frontloaded online training in the Achieve Equip OER (Open Education Resources) Standards, metadata and metatagging, copyright/attribution rights (Creative Commons) of digital content and vetting protocols. Following the curation work day, participants will be expected to take a piece of digital content curated and develop, implement and evaluate a lesson plan as well as reflective paper of implementation and lessons learned of the curation process and the impact of quality, vetted content on student learning.

~~STIPEND OPPORTUNITY FOR FIRST TIME CURATORS. MILEAGE AT STATE RATE IS ALSO AVAILABLE.~~

Lodging is not included and is left up to the participant.
