This prototype was built to show a method for making use of standards alignment data that resides in the Learning Registry to suggest resources that an educator may want to use in curriculum they are teaching.

To start we have a resource in Brokers of Expertise, a full lesson from the Shodor Education Foundation provided to us by Thinkfinity. This resource is also part of the NSDL Common Core Math collection. In this lesson students are given real world situations where they will need to put to use their knowledge of statistics, working with percents, and manipulating fractions. This resource was aligned to a common core standard by a member of the Brokers of Expertise Standards Match group. In this case, seventh grade standard 7.RP.3: "Use proportional relationships to solve multistep ratio and percent problems."

That alignment data is published using the LR Paradata format, as you can see here.

Now in CTE Online I have a teacher structuring their seventh grade math curriculum. For illustration purposes the outline of this curriculum roughly matches the sections of the common core math standards, so in the unit on Ratios & Proportional Relationships, this teacher is putting together a lesson on Multistep ratio and percents, and is considering some activities to do with his students to teach this concept. As you can see, the common core standard shown earlier is already selected for this lesson.

Now when selecting a resource for this activity, users are usually given the option to add a new resource, select one of their existing ones, or find something that already exists in the system. We're now giving them the option to select from a list of suggested resources, based on information in the Learning Registry, if there are suggestions available to them. By selecting one of the standards used in their curriculum, they are presented with some information on that resource, and can preview it before selecting it to include in their curriculum. As discussed previously on developer calls, it would be helpful to have easy access to the title and description of that resource, but for now we're just showing some of the information we have easily accessible.

After previewing, the teacher selects the resource and it is added to their curriculum. Of course this action of incorporating the resource in their curriculum will be published to the Learning Registry as well.

Getting this data for the related standards was accomplished by modifying the slice service. If you look at our GitHub account you'll see how we modified the slice service: http://github.com/navnorth/LearningRe.... At this point we are only looking at LR Paradata and not metadata. We are doing a slice on the "related" parameter, passing in an ASN id for the standard.
