Hooray!! EduChange has been named as one of the EdTech1000 Companies Transforming Education in the 2017-2018 State of EdTech Report President Catherine Saldutti was interviewed by EdTech Digest, the publishers of the report, and this is her statement:
“Instructional design is one of the most complex, dynamic and underrated activities in the design space, and perhaps the most critically needed technology in education today. After leveraging design science and systems thinking for 17 years, EduChange believes that Sustainable Open Educational Resources (SOER) will greatly improve the quality of digital curricula. Learning-centered, comprehensive, coherent instruction will never be accomplished by teacher assembly of disparate digital artifacts, including lessons. SOER makes collaborative roles explicit, permits ongoing, systematic revision, and supports reasonable teacher development through incremental changes over time. EduChange delivers a secondary STEM program driven by authentic global contexts, ensconced in an evolving content ecosystem, and mapped to our current understanding of how people actually learn. We integrate and track 485+ teaching and learning variables.”
