New FREE Resources at Your Fingertips

Wednesday, August 21, 2019

The school year is about to begin, and it can be overwhelming to develop or revise course curriculum and resources. When considering new quality CTE products and services for your program, your initial reaction might be “we have a limited budget for new resources.” What if I told you that you have access to more than 3,400 CTE Wisconsin standard-aligned resources from the WISELearn Resource Library for FREE? Take a look at this interactive table of contents to find outstanding CTE resources associated with the six areas of the Wisconsin Common Career Technical Standards along with academic standards for business and marketing education.

Here’s an option for CTE instructors in search of resources related to business administration education – business, marketing, project management, work-based learning, and employability skills. A state agreement with MBA Research vastly expanded CTE instructors’ access to additional free resources in these subject areas. The MBA Research Learning Center is a comprehensive learning management system for teachers and students powered by Canvas that includes instructional modules, pre-built courses, and assessments.

Allie Holtzer, West Bend School District educator, has used the Learning Center. Her assessment? “The MBA Learning Center gives students a one-stop spot to get all resources that they can access from anywhere with the internet. Students can utilize it to communicate with me. They can use the calendar on it to track due dates and upcoming quizzes.”

And there’s yet another free outstanding resource called State's Connection. It provides teachers with access to curriculum and instructional items, work-based learning activities, and much more!

You can learn more about how to use all of these outstanding resources by viewing this webinar. Good luck in the year ahead!
