How can schools benefit from Open Educational Resources?Posted on 06/30/2016
In a recent blog post, Thomas C. Murray, Director of Innovation at Future Ready Schools, summarizes his online conversation with Andy Marcinek , Chief Open Education Advisor at the US Department of Education (ED), to explore how schools can benefit from Open Educational Resources (OERs) and what is being done in this area nationwide.
With support from ED, state leaders, and new platforms for curation and discovery, there has never been a more exciting time to rethink traditional, static instructional materials. Open Education Resources were the highlight of this Future Ready webinar as they align to the Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment gear of the Future Ready Framework . From equity, to cost, to teacher empowerment, many benefits of open resources exist.
