Once again, I am awed by what others have taken the time to build and offer on the internet for educators for…free! 100%, no-string-attached free! Connexions is one of those open-source (free) sites that amaze me. Because the site is so vast and my (sleepy) mind too small to decipher it all tonight, I’ll let an author at Connexions do the explaining:
“Connexions is a non-commercial, open-education resource for teachers
and students. All materials are under a Creative Commons attribution
license, and so may be freely downloaded, copied, shared, and altered.
Because the content is submitted by many different educators, there is
a very wide variety of subject matter and “grade level”, from
pre-school to university.
The Connexions commons can be searched from
its home page (http://cnx.org). Or, people who are looking specifically for music education
materials may find useful two modules that I have published there,
“Music in Connexions: A User’s Guide”, and “Music in Connexions: A K-12 Teacher’s Guide“, both of which explain how to use the site and how to find relevant material. Thank you for your attention and consideration.” ~ Catherine Schmidt-Jones
Thank you, Catherine, for letting us know about Connexions!
