A few weeks ago, a colleague working on district technology planning from another District sent me the following request for research matching the use of educational technology in the following areas:
1. Policy and procedure development as it relates to technology
2. Professional Development (includes campus tech mentors)
3. Administrative support, awareness, and accountability
5. Change in teacher instructional methods
Wow, what a great set of questions to have to answer. At the time, I was engaged in a variety of different projects for work and home, so I couldn’t spend the time to respond. However, it occurred to me later that finding research on the Web has never been easier.
|Find out more about OER|
Open Educational Resources (OER) are teaching and learning materials that are freely available online for anyone to use, whether you are an instructor, student, or self-learner. OER can exist as smaller, stand-alone resources that can be mixed and combined to form larger pieces of content, or as larger course modules or full courses.
OER is also a process of engaging with the materials. This process involves sharing materials that you have created, either individually or in groups with other teachers and/or learners; using and adapting others’ materials for your own use; and sharing back modifications to or comments about others’ materials so that future users can benefit. In this course, when we use the term OER, we are talking about the process of engaging with the materials.
