iCPALMS: Pathway for Standards-based Instruction
Provided by Learning Systems Institute, Florida State University. Partners include the Florida Dept. of Education, Duval County Public Schools, Seminole County Public Schools, Brevard Public School, Panhandle Area Educational Consortium (PAEC), Sciberus (software development), and Broadband Knowledge LLC (project evaluation). The ICPALMS Pathway at the Florida State University provides a widget-based portal and infrastructure for content, services, professional development, research, and dissemination supporting standards-driven instructional planning (both individual and collaborative) with K-12 NSDL resources. Resources are vetted through a rigorous review process that involves teams of content, pedagogy, and practitioner experts to ensure that tools, services and connected content are standards-based, reflect appropriate levels of cognitive complexity and utilize evidence-based instructional strategies tied to improved student outcomes. ICPALMS makes accessing and implementing digital resources relevant in the day-to-day roles and responsibilities of educators. Integrating the Common Core and other national standards facilitates expanding implementation and expandability into other states.
