The Global Learning Resource Connection (GLRC) is an international collaboration of world class companies, organizations, education agencies, and nations. The GLRC is making resources correlated to learning objectives available for use in the classroom with the help from many of our Premier Sponsors and Partners including The American Association for the Advancement of Science, The American Association of School Librarians, Cengage/Gale, Center for Natural language Processing, Cisco, Education Services Australia, IMS Global Learning Consortium, Library of Congress, Michigan eLibrary, Microsoft, National Education Association (NEA), National Science Foundation, Teach Engineering, Teachers Domain, and WGBH (PBS- Boston).
“I am very excited that important companies, organizations, education agencies, and nations are playing key leadership roles in the development and advancement of the GLRC,” explained Diny Golder, Executive Director of JES & Co. “The result of the GLRC collaboration will be that education resources can be correlated to any set of learning objectives including specific state standards, the Common Core State Standards, any country’s national curriculum, or any set of learning objectives desired. The really exciting outcome is that education resources can be discovered and accessed from any state or from any country in the world using localized learning objectives. We call this connecting the dots between educational systems, or the Global Learning Resource Connection,” said Golder.
