In addition to being a digital library, WISE Learn is a platform to support instructional communities as they create, evaluate, adapt, and share content.
There are over 12,000 educational resources on WISE Learn designed for students in preschool through high school and adult education. Subject areas include:
- Applied Science
- Arts and Humanities
- Business and Communication
- Career and Technical Education
- English and Language Arts
- Life Science
- Physical Science
- Social Science
Open educational resources give educators the ability to adapt instructional resources to the individual needs of their students, to ensure that resources are up-to-date, and to ensure that cost is not a barrier to accessing high-quality standards-aligned resources.
Wisconsin educators can tag, rate, and review materials, and share what works for them on WISE Learn.
The Institute for the Study of Knowledge Management Education (ISKME) created WISE Learn on the OER Commons platform, to serve curriculum experts and educators in discovering open educational resources and collaborating around the use, evaluation, and improvement of those materials.
