The Middletown Learning Path is an innovative new OER tool for educators and students which solves for inefficiencies in the curriculum marketplace and fosters personalized learning. The OER player provides access to high-quality, standards aligned, vetted digital resources and assessments for educators and students. The player feeds data to educators, allowing them to create personalized playlists for students, enabling increased student agency and choice.

We are proposing an interactive discussion session in which we will provide a short presentation on OER and the Middletown Learning Path tool. The presenters will each have a few minutes to discuss their involvement in the development and use of the tool. We will conduct a poll to better understand the audience and use Google slides to facilitate a discussion around the implementation, vetting and development of OER to fill curriculum gaps and personalize learning for students.

The Middletown Learning Path is being developed in a partnership between the Enlarged School District of Middletown, New York and Education Elements. The Learning Accelerator is spotlighting examples of how OER can be used in blended and personalized classrooms to increase student agency and engagement. The panel members will include Ken Eastwood, Superintendent of Middletown School District, Ray Rozycki, Vice President of Education at Education Elements and Jennifer Wolfe, Partner at The Learning Accelerator.
