CCSSO State of the States Report
The use of OER (Open Educational Resources) is rapidly gaining momentum in K-12 education. This is evidenced by the newly released report “State of the States: Open Educational Resources in K-12 Education” from the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) in the U.S. Actually a majority of the states are already using or promoting OER for the classroom.
Quoting from the report:
“The survey revealed a number of insights into the work SEAs [state education agencies] are taking on around OER and the momentum around digital learning. These findings include:
- Twenty states are currently planning OER initiatives.
- Sixty percent of SEA respondents recognize the value of OER in school districts in their state and are promoting OER as either a supplement and/or replacement for traditional instructional materials.
- States with existing OER programs are utilizing a variety of online methods to develop, curate, and access OER materials and integrate them within school programs.
- Eighty-four percent of respondents would like to collaborate and learn from what other states are doing.”
