A year in review: Where are we with #GoOpen and what's next?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Over the past few years there has been an increased interest around high-quality open educational resources (OER) in K-12 and the benefits OER can provide in terms of access, equity, and personalization of resources. In the fall of 2015, the U.S. Department of Education launched the #GoOpen Campaign to encourage states, school districts and educators to use openly licensed educational materials to transform teaching and learning. As of early 2016 there were 15 #GoOpen States and over 40 #GoOpen districts. This session provides an update on the first year of #GoOpen from Joseph South, Director of OET at the U.S. Department of Education and Layla Bonnot, OER Lead at CCSSO. It also features Bobby Keener, Chief Information Officer and Team Lead for #GoOpen Virginia and includes both a district representative and educator sharing their perspectives on the first year of the campaign and the move toward implementation, adoption, and sustainability of OER.

This session will be set up to allow attendees to hear the federal/state/local/classroom perspective in small groups after a brief presentation to the full group.
