Open Educational Resources: Leveraging the Opportunity of Laptops for Open Education in Maine
Date of Award
Master of Education (MEd)
The Maine laptop initiative provides learners with the hardware and software needed to access OER (open educational resources). To meet learning standards teachers must identify and share these resources in an organized way. A group of educators from k‐12 schools identified existing open educational resources that meet curricular goals. For OER to grow in Maine schools, professional development, sustainability, funding, copyright, and quality control need to be considered.
