California Brokers of Expertise


At last weeks CUE conference I had the oportunity to sit down and listen to some of the people currently working on the new Brokers of Expertise project. It is an attempt to create a database or digital resources with connections to state standards and state assessments. Currently there are many CTAP regions and county offices of education that have been doing similar projects and this project appears to create a central state wide repository that brings all other resources under one umbrella.  Current content focus of the project is algebra and fourth grade English language arts. The current team is looking at ways to combine the resource database with current technologies, such as social networking, to also allow discussions and contributions from other educators. This project is still in the early stages, but if you look at the pilot site, you’ll get an idea of where they are heading.
