Event Overview

The OER sector is growing at an exponential rate – and the new generation of developers looks increasingly like the traditional publishers they seek to disrupt. Who are these companies, and what role do they play in the PreK-12 learning resource industry?

Join a conversation on the current OER landscape between Dr. Joseph South, Director of the Office of Educational Technology for the U.S. Department of Education; Dr. Alexis McGloin, Superintendent of the Upper Perkiomen School District (PA), which is a GoOpen Ambassador District; and Randy Wilhelm, a K-12 industry expert in OER and CEO co-founder of Knovation. They’ll discuss

  • the rise of companies developing comprehensive, openly licensed PreK-12 curriculum;
  • the breadth of funding for content development;
  • why OER has become an important component in education reform;
  • how purchasing decisions are made; and
  • the pros and cons of OER.
