Redefining Curriculum with Open Educational Resources and Teacher-Created Content

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

With the wealth of digital resources available and the software tools at their disposal, teachers can exert greater control than ever over the content of their courses and classrooms. In this session, we will describe our school's movement away from traditional textbooks to teacher-created resources that allowed for greater flexibility, engagement, and creation without sacrificing content and learning objectives. We will discuss open educational resources such as the CK-12 organization, Project Gutenberg, Creative Commons, and others as well as explore the tools used to undertake such a project, such as iBooks Author, BookCreator, ThingLink, iAd Producer, Keynote, Tumult Hype, et al.
