NC K-12 Open Ed Resources
NCDPI Open Educator Resources
The North Carolina Digital Learning Plan shared that teachers are using Open Education Resources, which are freely-accessible, openly-licensed resources. They are supportive of the transition to digital content, but they struggle to find high-quality, standards-aligned resources.
North Carolina is one of 20 States who have committed to be a Go Open state, which is the national campaign for open education resources. We have been and will continue to be engaged with other Go Open states as they embark on their OER initiatives, sharing best practices and collaborating to overcome challenges.
We are excited to announce an agency-wide initiative that is partnering with ISKME, the Institute for the Study of Knowledge Management in Education, and their OER platform, OER Commons, which will serve as the OER service for North Carolina.
Our goals for the OER initiative include:
- Connect districts and schools as they engage in the OER efforts.
- Provide access to an NC microsite within OER Commons that will provide access to a growing repository for standards-aligned resources.
- Help teachers through the variety and accessibility of OER address students’ individual needs and personalize learning.
