Interactive: District Takes Modular Approach to Lesson Creation

An elementary school teacher in Orange County, Fla. who wants a lesson on amphibians and fish can find this page on the district's platform. The content, which has been curated by the district, comes from publishers and open resources created by teachers. Orange County's commercial partners that agree to use interoperability standards permit modular delivery of their content, so it can be used outside of their proprietary learning platforms. As a result, videos, podcasts, pictures, text, assessments, and web-camera images can be accessed from this single point.
