Using NCore open source middleware The Digital Learning Sciences team is developing, deploying, and evaluating a Curriculum Customization Service that transforms traditional print-based materials into concept-driven, interactive teachers’ guides. These online guides support curriculum planning and implementation by science teachers in the Denver Public Schools, are customizable and extensible to meet local needs, and provide targeted online professional development opportunities. The Curriculum Customization Service automates and extends the alignment between educational standards, core science concepts and learning goals, instructional materials, and formative and summative assessments.
