Using OER in a District Context

Explore stories of district journeys around OER

Overview

Exploring content that describes diverse districts and their approaches to OER can help educators think about how they may want to use OER. These stories are told at the district level, though many of the “lessons learned” can be applied to classrooms and schools. As educators read through this content, reflection questions serve as good prompts to help them use this information for their own OER journeys. Some questions include, but are not limited to:

  • As a teacher or school leader, what information is most relevant to me?
  • Is there anything this district is doing that I want to try?
