What I believe and why I got involved in Open Education Differentiating instruction is essential to improving education. Textbooks are not a good tool for this. Technology coupled with high quality content is. Teachers need high quality resources that they can use legally to build interactive lessons, podcasts, multimedia presentations, etc. Sharing is good.
Open Educational Resources (OER) are: Digital, free, and OPEN for anyone to use, adapt, and redistribute Tools, content, and implementation resources For teachers, students, and lifelong learners
