Cool Tools and OER

OER (Open Educational resources) is the topic of  one of this year’s new lessons in the Cool Tools for School workshop. Open Educational Resources are freely available educational materials, ideally put together by people who are experts in their fields and are willing to share their work freely under a Creative Commons license. This allows the end user to adapt the material for their own teaching and learning needs. (lots more on the Cool Tools lesson page!)

That lesson was posted a few weeks ago and since then a new podcast episode focusing on OER has come out from the House of #Ed TechKerry Gallagher is interviewed and provides very helpful information on the challenges and rewards of using OER. If you’re doing the OER lesson on Cool Tools or just curious about the OER movement, don’t miss this interview. (And House of #EdTech is a great podcast in any event!)
