Even though we’re in the middle of summer and temperatures are soaring, the new school year will be here soon. As you start to plan for students’ return to the classroom, we wanted to share some information about Open Educational Resources (OER).
OER are becoming increasingly popular as both core and supplemental instructional materials. And it’s no surprise why: OER materials are flexible, don’t require a contract, and a number of programs are highly rated by EdReports.org.
To learn more about OER and what to consider prior to adopting OER, take a moment to read this short but informative article, OER: Tips for Educators and Administrators. It includes ideas, best practices, and helpful tips from California districts who have considered or adopted OER materials in the past.
