We are thrilled to announce that Oracle has donated $20,000 to the leading K-12 global community for creating and sharing Open Educational Resources (OER). The grant will be used to add necessary functionality to the Curriki.org website, allowing Curriki to expand its library of high-quality STEM and Computer Science open educational resources.
Through Oracle Giving, the company helps nonprofit organizations around the world awaken and deepen students’ interest in computer science (CS) and science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics (STEAM).
Curriki appreciates this grant, as our website is our primary tool for distributing high-quality OER to teachers and learners worldwide. We also really appreciate Oracle’s ongoing commitment to Curriki’s mission over 5 years.
Nicole Snow, Senior Manager of Oracle Giving, has this to say about why Oracle is committed to Curriki: “Oracle is dedicated to supporting Education and proud to be part of Curriki’s vision of inspiring learning everywhere. We’re excited to see the growth of Open Educational Resources that will expand learning communities for students and teachers globally.”
Kim Jones is the Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Curriki. Kim is active in driving policy initiatives and is regularly featured as an honorary speaker on the impact of technology in education at influential meetings around the world. Learn more at Curriki.org.
