OER can fall into many different categories of instructional materials. Determine your need and search critically for resources.
- Teacher/student usage of “building block” open resources (filter by open licenses on search engines)
- Individual classroom use of open supplemental lessons/units (state or non-profit OER repositories)
- District adoption/interim adoption of open full curriculum materials (state or non-profit OER repositories, OER developer sites)
- Building/district creation of open full curriculum materials (internal development)
Washington State Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction provides Resources for Using OER that can be used by school districts and teachers interested in implementing OER and communicating with stakeholders in their educational communities.
