Family Engagement: INFOhio Provides Opportunities for All

Written by // Emily Rozmus Wednesday, 04 August 2021

There's no doubt about it: when parents are involved, students do better. According to the Family Engagement Collaborative of the Miami Valley, family engagement in schools leads to higher student achievement and graduation rates, fewer behavioral problems, better self-esteem, and stronger performance by students from diverse backgrounds. 

There will always be barriers to family engagement, but framing it as an "opportunity for all" can help schools move beyond the barriers. The Framework Institute advises that promoting family engagement as an equity issue and policy matter focuses the initiative on inclusivity and opportunities for achievement for all children and will help schools look at how current practices may exclude some students and families. Introduce the high-quality instructional materials available at no cost from INFOhio to families to help remove barriers and provide opportunities for all.

Creating and Sharing Open Educational Resources (OER)

Written by // Matt Yauk Tuesday, 18 May 2021

So you’re comfortable in finding and integrating Open Educational Resources (OER) into your curriculum and want to take the next step? Are you ready to create new resources to share with others? This blog is for you!

Finding and Integrating Open Educational Resources (OER)

Written by // Matt Yauk Monday, 17 May 2021

Have you ever found something from the internet that could be a perfect resource (image, video, quiz, etc.) for your class, and you spent hours trying to figure out the copyright issues with that resource? You couldn’t find any Terms of Use, and there was no author information, so you didn’t know who to contact to get permission to use it? Wouldn’t it have been nice if that resource somehow said “I’m free to use, no strings attached, you don’t need to ask for my permission because it is already granted”? Open Educational Resources, or OER for short, are an answer to this problem.
