In this session, presented by the Open Educational Resources (OER) community on edWeb.net, attendees had a look at some OERs – to give you a sense of what already exists and what is possible. Julie Willcott, science teacher and Apple Distinguished Educator, addressed how to get started creating your own OER courses and books. Julie also went over copyright issues and discussed how to compile the best content for your students.
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.
Whether you are a veteran of re-using, re-purposing and sharing OER, a novice, or somewhere in-between, this webinar provided valuable information about finding, creating, and using robust common core aligned K-12 content. Let us help you reduce any fears and increase your understanding about using OER.
