In a poll of readers of SmartBrief and EdTech, teachers were asked what types of resources they used when developing curriculum. Over 80% of teachers responded that they used online resources for developing core subject courses. Textbooks were used about 15%, with software programs, coming in at 4%. Only about 5% of the teachers in the poll said they did not use online resources in curriculum development.
As for how teachers share what they do in curriculum development, most suggested in-person meetings over professional networks and social media.
