Using statewide, online, and open ed resources


Published on

Having trouble navigating all the available online resources? In this session, learn how to “level up” your instruction with OER, the state's extensive educational resources (made available through BadgerLink), and CommonLinks, the active project to correlate online resources with Academic Standards. We will discuss different licensing and copyright issues related to the type of resource and how all have a place in your instructional repertoire.

This is the BadgerLink and CommonLinks slides given at WEMTA on March 25, 2014 in the Wisconsin Dells
