Learning about OER – Open Educational Resources OER is a transformational idea that can play an important role in changing the nature, and availability, of educational materials, content, and tools. I’m pretty sure that the first time I heard the formal phrase “Open Educational Resources” was during Josh Baron’s Disruptive Change keynote presentation at the Campus Technology 2010 conference last July.

Five Free Web 2.0 Tools to Support Lesson Planning "Teachers need to integrate technology seamlessly into the curriculum instead of viewing it as an add-on, an afterthought or an event." -- Heidi Hayes Jacobs, Educational Consultant, Curriculum Designers, Inc. Web 2.0 tools are online software programs that allow users to do a number of different things. They can be used to teach curriculum content, store data, create or edit video, edit photos, collaborate and so much more. These programs are often free and are used by teachers, students and sometimes parents, both in and out of the classroom, on a pretty regular basis. The question then becomes: are educators prepared to use these tools? Are educators, especially new ones, ready to incorporate Web 2.0 tools into their classroom?
Safe Connects PSAs If the “real world” is a more positive than negative place for 99% of the planet’s citizens, then similarly, the Internet is a positive place for 99% of all of its netizens. These public service announcements are one small component of a much larger media and digital literacy campaign to increase Internet safety awareness. We were asked to be the “voice of youth” and prioritize, script, and star in videos that focused on the most significant Internet safety problems of the day. All education, government, and nonprofits are free to use Net Literacy’s content without attribution so long as it is done in a responsible manner. So when using these PSAs as a component of your Internet safety training program, please balance the discussions with teens and adults so that these PSAs are viewed in an appropriate context – that the Internet is an empowering and positive place.
