I presented at the KASL District I workshop today on Open Educational Resources and the Open Web for the School Librarian. This is a slightly revamped version from Tuesday’s presentation at Computers in Libraries in Washington, D.C., and with Gary Price’s permission (my co-presenter there), I have incorporated many of his resources into the presentation. All of the resources (links list, articles, download slides are available on my Open Educational Resources LibGuide). The slides are embedded below.

This has allowed for a lot of innovation to happen in consortias, open source More >
