Huawei and Curriki made the announcement at the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) 2014 Conference.
Under the agreement, Curriki will curate Open Educational Resources for a Curriki Calculus Collection. The collection will be designed for use in a teacher-led, group-based instructional setting, and provide multimedia instruction, interactive learning and reference resources suitable for student use.
“Huawei shares Curriki’s passion for providing the highest quality of teacher-vetted teaching and learning resources — at no cost,” said Kim Jones, CEO of Curriki.
To improve the quality of education in community schools, Huawei Enterprise has developed an e-Education platformthat uses networking, cloud computing and high-speed Internet to allow schools and universities to engage students in a connected, digital environment.
“Curriki and Huawei want to foster development of open curricula that meet the needs of a 21st Century education, particularly for STEM academics, which are essential for engineering careers,” said Jane Li, COO of Huawei Enterprise USA. “ICT advancements enable digital teaching environments such as the Curriki Calculus Collection to take education beyond the boundaries of classrooms.”
“Curriki is committed to curating collections of the best in STEM content and we are thrilled that Huawei shares our passion for enabling the study of calculus with free Open Educational Resources,” stated Scott McNealy, Co-founder of Curriki.
