eCurriculum and eTexts

A couple of days ago a post on Curriki inspired me to take another look at the world of digital texts.   I got so inspired that I pulled together a little digital text pathfinder for our high school faculty.  Immediately, I got positive response.

In two or three years since I started dreaming about the equity, currency, linkability, and portability issues addressed by digital texts–along with the notion of teachers and learners collaborating on and updating and customizing and adapting and supplementing curricula–the landscape shifted.

So, once again, I got a bit carried away in Only2Clicks, and the resulting pathfinder is, what I consider, a glorious hodgepodge of open source content, video lectures, free documents, and some older traditional texts.  Please feel free to share!

    Joyce,
    Thanks for this resource. You never fail to inspire, although I must admit to being a bit in awe of your work ethic.

  2. Thanks for this Joyce! I am a newly qualified librarian and have subscribed to your blog to keep up to date with ways to use the latest tech in school libraries.

    I had been using wikis to create pathfinders, but always worried that they ended up looking too “listy”. I was unfamiliar with Only2Clicks before, so I will certainly give it a try for some of my pathfinders. As I am currently operating a shockingly tiny budget, any ideas on how to make the most of open source and free web resources are always appreciated.
