21st Century Learning Center Launches on iTunes U
Illinois’ leading education group, Vision 20/20, recently announced the launch of Vision 20/20 21st Century Learning Center to help transform Illinois teaching and learning by providing high-quality, digital course content on iTunes U for classroom teachers in the four core content areas of mathematics, science, social studies and English language.
The launch took place at High School District 214 in Arlington Heights, Illinois and with the use of technology, was simulcast live in Springfield at the offices of the Illinois Principals Association. State Superintendent Tony Smith joined the event in Springfield while Secretary of Education Dr. Beth Purvis attended at District 214.
The repository, available through iTunes U, is an open education collection of resources accessible to all and will initially focus on grades 9-12. Plans to expand the site for grades K-8 are in the initial development stages. Learning resources including lectures, videos, books, and materials are available for nine high school courses such as Algebra I, Algebra II, Chemistry, Geometry, ELA 9-10, ELA 11-12, Economics, Biology, and Physics and additional courses will be added by early this fall.
Educators from 22 school districts across Illinois began meeting earlier this year to help choose the digital content and curriculum resources teachers, students and families need to meet the state’s Illinois Learning Standards. The collection resources were then vetted by content leaders and curriculum specialists before added to the site. Access this exciting resource at http://illinoisvision2020.org/21st-century-learning-center/ .
The Illinois Vision 20/20 21st Century Learning Center on iTunes U is part of the ongoing school transformation work and welcomes feedback and suggestions to continuously improve these iTunes U course resource collections. This site currently contains high school course materials and resources for math, science, English, and social studies curated by Illinois teachers for the Vision 20/20 project.
