file transfer-315170_640Ever wondered how to integrate open educational resources (OER) into your classroom? Webinar presenter, Michelle Comen, 5th Grade Teacher at Orange Grove Elementary Charter School, has been using OER in her elementary school classroom for the past two years. This session covered strategies to meet the needs of all students in your classroom and helped attendees navigate through the challenge of finding elementary grade level materials. Michelle also shared her own experiences and shed some light on the pros and cons of using these free resources. Finally, the presentation delved into Net Texts, the free textbook replacement app that allows students, parents, and teachers to become interactive with their child’s learning.
