During the practice of the art and science of teaching, teachers are constantly engaged in designing resources to improve the learning experiences and achievement of their students. Depending on the culture of the school, teachers often share these lesson plans, ideas, and activities with the teachers next door or across the hall of the school building. This collaboration helps everyone focus on individual strengths, and students and teachers benefit from this shared expertise.
“Openly licensed educational resources can increase equity by providing all students, regardless of zip code, access to high-quality learning materials that have the most up-to-date and relevant content.” - John King, U.S. Secretary of Education
Open Educational Resources (OER) allow for fundamental changes in teaching and learning by efficiently providing open access to high quality, cost-efficient educational resources available on the internet. Generally, these resources are specifically licensed to be used and reused in an educational setting. OER Commons says that “Unlike copyrighted resources, OER have been authored or created by an individual or organization that chooses to retain few, if any, ownership rights. In some cases, that means you can download a resource and share it with colleagues and students. In other cases, you may be able to download a resource, edit it in some way, and then re-post it as a remixed work. How do you know your options? OER often have a Creative Commons license or other permission to let you know how the material may be used, reused, adapted, and shared.”
