OER Handbook for Educators 1.0 - WikiEducator

OER Handbook for Educators 1.0 - WikiEducator | Into the Driver's Seat |

Welcome to the world of Open Educational Resources (OER). This handbook is designed to help educators find, use, develop and share OER to enhance their effectiveness online and in the classroom.


Although no prior knowledge of OER[1] is required, some experience using a computer and browsing the Internet will be helpful. For example, it is preferable that you have experience using a word processor (e.g. Open Office[2] or Microsoft Word) and basic media production software, such as an image editor (e.g. Gimp[3], Inkscape[4] or Photoshop).


The handbook works best when there is some sort of OER you would like to create or make available to others, but it is also useful for the curious reader.


There are several ways to use this handbook.

The Teacher's Guide To Digital Citizenship

The Teacher's Guide To Digital Citizenship | Into the Driver's Seat |
Digital citizenship is important to understand for today's students, staff, and teachers. Microsoft has just unveiled a free curriculum that gives great tips and ideas on teaching digital citizenship and creative content.

Anne Whaits's curator insight, January 31, 2013 4:19 PM

"Four units comprise the curriculum resources. Each unit consists of standalone yet complementary lesson plans that play off a creative rights scenario presented through a case study.

Each unit has 4-6 of these project-oriented activities, one of which serves as the culminating lesson for the unit. Guiding questions help set the expectation for what students learn, and pre/post assessments establish baseline knowledge to gauge student learning. Modification and Extension suggestions recommend ways to abridge or expand the activities within the unit, and provide tips for engaging parents and peers outside of the classroom.

You’ll have to register to download the actual units (PDF format)."

Δωρεάν φωτογραφίες, με άδεια πνευματικών δικαιωμάτων για παρουσιάσεις, ιστολόγια, αφίσες. 12 πηγές ενδιάφερουσες. Από μια γρήγορη ματιά μου άρεσαν οι σελίδες unsplash & gratisography. Ανάλογα όμως με το τι ψάχνετε θα βρείτε και στις υπόλοιπες 10 τη φωτογραφία που εκφράζει καλύτερα το μήνυμά σας!
