Policies Public funding results in a public good Capitalize on new business models Digital copying & distribution cost = ~$0 You can share and still have the resource yourself Consortia vs. autonomy RFPs & new funding incentivize reuseof existing OER and/or existing edmaterial conversion to OER RFPs & new funding require CreativeCommons licenses Policies allow teachers to sharecurriculum materials under openCreative Commons licenses 12. Strategies Adopt open policy Implement open practices national, states, districts, schools,teachers, students, Finding & evaluating OER use portals to to accumulate, organize,and distribute content Remixing & publishing your own OER create online communities forteachers to collaborate, research and share resources Evolve instructional design and pedagogical methods to leverage OER Use Creative Commons licenses Integrate with tablet/iPad and other device adoptions Quality adopt quality rubrics & showcase examples that meettechnical, pedagogical, and academic quality Assessment assess OER impact (increased access, learningoutcomes, completion/graduation rates, cost savings, ) 13. Call To Action Scenario 45 US states and three US territories have adopted common core standardsfor Math and Language Arts. Collectively need common core aligned textbooks and supplementalmaterials. So what if there was money to RFP for all of the needed common corealigned textbooks and supplemental materials? The RFPs would be open and competitive... so the commercial sector couldalso participate. The best bid for the best product at the best price would win. All textbooks and curriculum created with these funds would be licensedCreative Commons Attribution or Public Domain States and school districts could have open access to no-cost, state-of-the-art, common core aligned materials. All use would be optional so no one can say "this is a national curriculumbeing forced upon us." Licenses allow all to reuse, revise or remix the content. Questions: Policy implications? Impact on Teacher Practice? Adjudication ofquality? (Who funds? What exactly is being funded? Commitment to adopt?Role of DoE, States and other organizations (CCSSO, iNACOL, Achieve,SEDTA, )? Evergreen/updating process beyond initial production? ) 14. Opportunities for cross-state work? Sharing Co-development Collection of model policies and legislation Professional learning Examining quality 15. Top technical assistance needs for your state?1. Awareness for policy makers?2. Messaging and outreach3. Professional learning for teachers and other leaders?4. Legislative, model policy supports?5. Analysis of current instructional materials environment and opportunities?6. Help building a coalition?7. Organizing digital OER for access and discoverability?8. Textbook adoption and distribution policies?What form might that take?1.Consulting?2.Speakers for In-state convening? 16.
