Full Spectrum of Learning
Navigator’s catalog offers a full spectrum of Open Education Resources for K-12, post-secondary, and life-long learning. The highly curated content is tagged to competencies that are cross-walked to state frameworks, and include accessibility tags. Navigator’s catalog includes more than 4 million open resources and 250,000 assessment questions.
Navigator indexes educational resources from publishers like EngageNY, CK12, NASA, Openstax, KQED, Khan Academy, and others. Its catalog of high-quality, metadata-tagged resources and questions is used widely in practice, organized by educators as collections and assessments, and approved by leading researchers.
Content analysis of the learning activities associates the activities with transcripts, summary, and phrase-cloud. Machine classification connects learning activities with competencies and resource types. Navigator uses the data stream to compute metadata such as relevance, engagement, and efficacy. These metadata are reviewed and enhanced by human experts where appropriate.
For every discipline of learning, partners can collaborate with Gooru to develop the competency framework complete with learning maps. Existing curriculum can then be aligned to the competency framework to enable the navigation experience. Competencies are mapped to local norms, such as state frameworks.
Full-spectrum of learning activities can be organized as collections and assessments and then used to create lessons that are aligned to competencies. Learning activities are organized into lessons with assessments to enable learners to gain proficiency in the related competencies. To conform with current practices, the lessons for these competencies can be organized into units and courses.
A full spectrum of learning resources, such as media-rich interactives, videos, labs, narratives, presentations, and offline rubric graded projects and experiential learning activities, are available. Machine-graded and teacher-rubric graded formative assessments can be searched and assigned to help all learners develop complex and abstract knowledge in a variety of subjects and domains.
