The Hard Work of Growth Mindset in the Classroom

As the "new kid" at EdGate, I get to see a wider range of standards than what I was exposed to in my recent teaching experience.

Understanding today's Libraries and MARC Records

Did you know there are more public libraries in the United States than McDonald's? Since the 1960s, libraries across the United States have been using MARC as a way to keep records traditionally shown on a catalog card.  MARC stands for MA-chine Readable Cataloging record. A plethora of information is included in these records, the most basic being name, summary, subject, and call number.

Standards Encourage Collaboration with Scientific Community

As schools work to implement the Next Generation Science Standards, scientists are rethinking how to work with schools to create interest in and strengthen understanding of the field.

Science education is about more than STEM careers. In fact, as David Evans, executive director of the National Science Teachers Association, notes, "everyone needs to know how to look at evidence and engage in the practices of science."

Using OER to fill your Gaps

Year after year EdGate has built upon this repository and it now houses hundreds of thousands of grade-specific OER from a multitude of renowned publishers, all aligned to countless numbers of educational standards, including supplemental and international standards.
