[hackerspaces] CC-licensed Maker Pedagogy (Lesson Plans, etc)?

A similar idea was popping up here:
  A lage database of community lesson material, assignments and the
sort, passive, interactive.
  A platform where to select and structure them into a curiculum
  an interface to use that curiculum on a pletora of devices, laptops,
android devices(touchpads for instance), ipads, all the sorts

With math we think that interactive/visual material is very important,
here in Amsterdam there are some schools which focus a lot practical
teaching, that is by visual reallife examples, but few use computers for
math (languageclasses seem more common).

As I've said earlier, there is quite a lot of community material being
made on geogebra (oss and all that), but I haven't heard of it being
used in class a lot overhere besides as a drawing program or alternative

As one teacher has developed a class, they pass it along to another (at same or different space) via face2face meetings and talking.  A distributed system makes that a lot harder.  Meetups will be important in the future for this.  Maybe some of the hackerspace meetups will have teacher sharing tracks/time.
