PreK-12: OER and the Learning Resource Industry - Blended or on the Rocks? (Leadership Forum)
9:30 AM - 4:30 PM
OER is in every classroom now - or should be according to legislators, education advocates, and community members. It is often heralded as not only a way for schools to save money, but also as the answer to perceived problems with materials from traditional learning resource developers. But as with any instructional materials, the impact of OER on student learning depends on a variety of factors from the quality of the content to teacher implementation. At this forum we will demystify OER, exploring how it works, what educators are looking for when they use OER in the classroom, the changing dynamic between educators and content developers, and the potential business models for success.
Keynote Speaker: Richard Culatta, Chief Innovation Officer, State of Rhode Island, former Director of the Office of Educational Technology
The Leadership Forum is being presented by the AAP PreK-12 Learning Group in conjunction with the Center for Innovation & Digital Learning.
