Designing the OER School System
12:00 PM - 3:00 PM:
Room: Huron
Format: Pre/Post Conference Half-day Workshop - 3 Hours
Session Fee: $155
Brief Session Description: Digital conversion impacts all facets of school systems. As teachers change their practice and students use new devices and applications in their learning, curriculum and educational resources change as well. This participant-driven workshop will seek to share ideas and understandings of openly licensed educational resources in K-12 schools as a part of a new overall digital content district strategy. The workshop will focus on how transitioning to openly licensed educational resources in place of static, traditional textbooks will impact student learning, professional learning for educators, and digital systems and infrastructure. Participants will hear from school system technology/education leaders who have started or made this transition, learn from their examples and insight, and leave with a draft strategy to take action in their respective schools.
