School Librarians and Open Educational Resources Aid and Implement Common Core Instructional Content in the Classroom
Welz, Krista
Knowledge Quest, v45 n4 p63-68 Mar-Apr 2017
Many educators may view use of Open Educational Resources (OERs) as a new trend that has emerged in various school districts, especially those OERs that are (Common Core State Standards) CCSS-aligned. However, OERs certainly aren't new to education. Many educators have been using these types of materials since the late 1990s (Godwin 2016). Interestingly, there has been increased interest in open education within the last few years because of high--and rising--costs of textbooks and the lack of commercially produced CCSS-aligned material. School librarians are experienced evaluators and curators of content, and, therefore, valuable assets in school districts adopting OERs. School librarians also have the skills to conduct professional development for colleagues facing the sometimes daunting task of integrating OERs into their lesson plans.
