CURRIKI is a wonderful site that gives Teachers the opportunity to get in touch with other colleagues in order to share experiences about the use of different resources to enrich the Teaching Learning Process. It is so helpful to find different and interesant free resources for us, as Teachers from a foreign country to use. M. A. Margarita R. Ruiz, Tech Coordinator, Instituto D'Amicis, A. C: Puebla, México
Curriki is a fantastic organization that demonstrates passion for helping and providing education and resources to young people both in the US and abroad. It gives Teachers the opportunity to connect with colleagues for various reasons including curriculum development. Plus, it's free. What could be better!? I love it as a teacher and recommend it to parents too.
I sent my niece to Curriki when she was struggling with chemistry last year and what she found in the Curriki library was so helpful to her. Not only did she find a bunch of videos that helped her understand the concept she was struggling with that week, but throughout the year. She kept returning to the site to get clarification on things that confused her in class and to review for tests! I highly recommend Curriki to students in need of homework help.
In my opinion, teachers could make great use of the free resources too. In fact, I believe they are all contributed by teachers and reviewed by experts!
I'm a parent and find Curriki very useful in giving my kids homework help outside the classroom. For example, my son was having trouble with his chemistry class and Curriki offers many resources (including Khan videos) that further explain math and science concepts. I'm amazed at the creative & entertaining resources that can be found on Curriki - just saw a rap video teaching cell biology!
I've referred both my sons to Curriki when they were in high school. They search Curriki to find extra help with math and science. They use the Khan videos (chemistry, math, etc.), which are helpful in explaining concepts. I also like that you can find just about anything on Curriki - I've even found free graph paper templates and interactive games.
I love a lot of things about Curriki. A few years ago, as a teacher and pro-bono curriculum developer, I researched all the major players in Open Education Resources and decided to invest my personal time into adding content to Curriki. That the site is still functional and growing is significant, because user adoption is critical to its impact. I am reserving the last star on my rating, however, because the site (recently redesigned and improved in many ways) still has significant bugs and poor support.
As a science teacher I am challenged to come up with new and different ways to present material to students. Curriki is a great source of interesting projects and videos that help kids understand science and keep them engaged.
As a fourth grade teacher, I use Curriki for lessons in EVERY subject. From science to reading.
Curriki never lets me down with up-to-date resources to use in my classroom, and saves me hours worth of lesson planning! With Curriki, there’s no reason to start from scratch!
Really love the math materials -- especially the Curriki geometry PBL course!!!
THANK YOU, CURRIKI!!!
Curriki is one of my "go-to" sites when I'm looking for something unique to engage my students. Really, they have the best content. I always find something that I can use and modify for my students. They add more and more material every day, so there is always something new whenever I visit. I always start on the homepage with their "New Curriculum" - the featured stuff changes every month. Oh, and the monthly newsletter - great stuff in there!!
My name is Paula, and I’m the mother of 2 children of 5 and 8.This year we decided to start with education at home, it has been a challenging experience but rewarding at the same time. Here in Chile, there are no educational materials for use at home, so one must create material for each child. It is difficult, if you do not have professional guidance. I got myself educational plans and started looking on the internet to help my children and found Curriki. Curriki has been of great help with my children for school because there is a structure to lesson plans and class material is available to them.
