How Can We Rethink Instructional Materials?
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM: Breakout
Room: Broadway II (Hilton Portland Downtown)
Format: Concurrent Session - 60 Minutes
Brief Session Description: PreK-12 school districts across the country are rethinking the role that instructional materials play in today's learning environments. Open Educational Resources (OER)—freely available educational materials that can be downloaded, edited, and shared—provide educators with access to timely and relevant materials that support new standards, shifts in pedagogy, and the desire to be more inclusive. Join this session to learn more about PreK-12 OER in practice and how districts are leading this work.?
