questionsAre you aware of a great new educator resource funded by the Department of Education?

The new version of the Federal Registry for Educational Excellence (FREE) is powered by the Learning Registry, an open database for sharing digital learning resources. This partnership provides  customers – educators, parents and students – with a broader inventory of educational materials from federal agencies and public and private organizations. More than 200,000 freely available resources are included in the new FREE. The new site incorporates responsive design for mobile devices. This means FREE looks great and works well for customers on smartphones and tablets. By modernizing the technology behind FREE, the agency is preparing a platform for future enhancements. It now will be easier to share content in FREE on social media networks. The department envisions crowdsourcing expertise from the education community and incorporating more customer-generated input in the future and are considering new features so customers can rate, tag, and comment on specific resources, as well as save their favorites for future reference.
