Stanford University requests a planning grant to develop a strategy and workplan for creating four MOOCs (Massively Open Online Courses) on an open online learning platform to accelerate Common Core State Standards (CCSS) appropriation by K-12 educators in English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics. Each MOOC will address CCSS in ELA or Math, and for either Elementary or Secondary level teaching. Teachers will experience video lectures/quizzes, study CCSS-indexed teaching videos, and implement what they are learning in their classrooms, raising questions and reflections to advance their learning in MOOC forums. Teachers learning to implement CCSS instruction will more likely facilitate Deeper Learning for their students than commonplace practices. This planning grant will attempt to design the launch of a large scale effort in 2013 to build teacher capacity to support CCSS and Deeper Learning at an unprecedented scale.
