Open Education Resources: How to go Textbook-Less
Wednesday, October 9, 2019
Topic: Behavior & Climate
Sponsored by: ESC-CC
Presenter(s): Stephanie DeMichele
Description:

Why are we—in the 21st century—still relying on learning materials that are antiquated?  Why are we still burdening our students (and ourselves) with cumbersome, expensive and outdated textbooks?  At a time when we have the most powerful online educational tools at our disposal, why are we still espousing a one-size-fits-all methodology?  There is a better way!

Open Educational Resources (OERs) are cloud-based, relevant, timely, interactive and FREE materials that allow educators to fuel collaboration, engage learners, and keep educational materials relevant, customizable, and inexpensive.  In this workshop, educators will:

=       Explore vetted, easy-to-navigate OER sources categorized by content area

=       Discover new ways to deliver instructional materials in the digital age

=       Examine ways to best formatively assess learning in a “text-book-less” classroom

=       Curate a lesson plan for their own online “textbook-less” classroom.

Audience: Teachers, assistant principals, assistant principals, curriculum directors, technology director, coaches and other interested educators
