“I don’t feel trapped by the textbook. Instead, as a teacher, I can create the digital curriculum in the way the works best for my students.”

OER in Action: Implementation Highlights
Across the country, as district and schools shift to digital learning environments educators are leveraging digital instructional materials including open educational resources (OER) to provide more diversified and personalized instruction to improve teaching and learning.
As a part of the movement to digital learning, the implementation of open educational resources is climbing. States, districts, and local schools are modifying their current policies for approving curricula to include OER materials, encouraging the use of OER at the local level and in some cases providing OER materials. These trends provide educators the opportunity to fully utilize digital instructional materials, including OER, to improve teaching and learning.
