Watch Steve Sherman talk about how he collaborates with teacher colleagues around the world and how you might join them in making the world a smaller place. This is what REAL education is about.

We're seeking student voices for this year's conference.

Have your students record a 1-2 minute video about what school should be, and they might end up in our key note. Other ways to participate as well.

Tonight on Teachers Teaching Teachers at 6pm PT/9pm ET at www.edtechtalk.com/ttt. Join us.
 
Imagine a conversation about OER between https://twitter.com/debschi, https://twitter.com/wiobyrne, https://twitter.com/verenanz, https://twitter.com/kfasimpaur! You don't have to imagine it. They will be with us on http://edtechtalk.com/ttt this Wed May 11 at 9pmET/6pmPT

Our discussion on TTT this week will be about Open Educational Resources (OER) use in K-12, especially vs. boxed commercial curriculum. We'll be talking about open learning, faith in teachers, goals of administrators and community stakeholders--and the desire for all kids to be "on the same page," often literally of a commercial textbook, standards and testing, what's best for learners, remix and reuse, and more.

This conversation was prompted by an email from Deb Schiano, which asked these initial questions:

--What does a district gain by using OER's with respect to $'s and student learning?
--How would you recommend beginning the process? For example, is there a platform you recommend for curating resources? Finding resources etc.
--How do you best get teacher buy in?

These questions prompted a long email exchange as well as a couple blog posts and now this extended conversation!

Joining us will be +Deb Schiano, +Verena Roberts, +Ian O'Byrne, +Karen Fasimpaur and others, hopefully including you!
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Paul Allison. The live video broadcast will begin soon.
