Curriki.org is a wonderful endeavour. It is a place where teachers can share resources and bypass the big monopolization of "content" which many large
publishers hold. I"ve been a member for awhile but haven't looked at the Foreign language directory for a few months. Since then it has grown substantially and I'm thinking of putting our own EFL Classroom 2.0 materials there. Join, click on our pic! and see the resources.
Please report back here/share what nuggets you might find!
Curriki is the brainchild of Scott McNeally. Read this great article about his philosophy and future plans. He
really is making a big difference and is bang on in his endeavor to making education/teaching about process rather than contro/power/content. In particular, he is trying to create a site for teacher development. He states,
"Teachers and parents and students are really good at finding things that make it easier for them teach or quicker for them to learn something. To speed that viral marketing, developers are working on an
application that would let members of a social network, like Facebook, stay within the site yet still publish content to Curriki."
A great idea! The future is almost among us........thanks Scott!
