In today’s connected classroom, teachers are able to find any resource in the world to help their children learn and grow.
Billions--literally!--of learning objects exist on the web, and every district in the US has multiple publishers and vendors providing digital content, assessment items, videos, lesson plans and instructional material.
Yet when asked, teachers point to the ongoing challenge of finding high-quality, instructionally aligned digital content for their classrooms.
In a world where every Google search returns millions of options, teachers are still just as adrift as the Ancient Mariner: “Water, water everywhere, and not a drop to drink.”
To begin to solve the problem of easily connecting teachers to high-quality content for their classrooms, we must first start with the purpose of that content: providing instruction that is aligned to the state standards of learning.
This is the gold standard for any digital resource: does it align to and support the mastery of standards-based instruction?
Finding and aligning content for specific instructional purposes is what TEG has dedicated much of its research and development efforts to over the last decade.
We have dived deep into the challenges school districts and their teachers face in obtaining and using digital content that they can rely on because it is machine-readable aligned to standards, aligned to other resources, and curated effectively. Our goal is to ensure that finding and using high-quality instructional materials is no longer a burden for our educators.
All of TEG’s products and solutions are informed by our core principle of instructional alignment of resources. Explore some success stories that reflect TEG’s innovation and dedication to this principle.
