Welcome to Revise, Remix, Redesign, the PreK-12 Open Educational Resources (OER) Podcast from the Education Policy Program at New America hosted by Kristina Ishmael.
Open Educational Resources are freely available educational materials that can be downloaded, customized, and shared without worrying about copyright. They can take many different forms, from comprehensive curriculum, similar to traditional series we know and use, to supplemental resources like individual learning objects that can be used on their own or curated into units for teaching and learning.
In each episode, Kristina interviews someone in the OER community to discuss everything from how states and districts started this work, along what it looks like in practice; the role teachers and school librarians play in curating and implementing; and even how content is developed.
Check this page each week on Monday for new episodes.
