OpenEd and PowerUp What Works Form Partnership to Bring Together Comprehensive Online Educational Resources

PowerUp What Works has joined forces with OpenEd to bring educators a comprehensive suite of online educational resources! We’re working together to connect  the 1000’s  of online, high quality educational resources—including videos, games, auto-grading assessments, lesson plans, homework and more—on OpenEd, with the evidence-based teaching strategies and edtech solutions to enhance teaching and learning   from PowerUp.

OpenEd was founded in 2012 with the goal of providing teachers with access to the best educational resources for their students, with a focus on finding the right resources to teach the Common Core State Standards. To accomplish this important goal, OpenEd built the world’s largest catalog of lesson plans, assessments, homework assignments, educational videos and games.

PowerUp WHAT WORKS, located at the American Institutes for Research (AIR), is a free online resource that supports educators to help struggling students and those with disabilities leverage the power of technology to enhance teaching and learning to meet Common Core State Standards.
