For me, it’s a deep passion belief in the value of and the importance of global in our own personal learning.

Leadership Lounge

From what we’ve learned so far from school districts using OER resources, the outcomes are promising. The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation (early philanthropic OER investors) defines OER as "teaching, learning and research resources that reside in the public domain or have been released under an intellectual property license that permits their free use and re-purposing by others.". • Empower teachers – Teachers can adapt and customize their learning materials.
