Learn how Open Space, INFOhio's newest Open Educational Resource (OER) platform, supports educator collaboration and OER content creation. Open Space, developed in partnership with the Institute for the Study of Knowledge Management in Education (ISKME), is built on the OER Commons platform. This site provides a place for Ohio educators to work, collaborate, curate, and develop resources and lessons that easily integrate into Google Classroom and a variety of learning management systems. In this webinar, learn the role of OER in the K-12 curriculum. Learn how you can work within INFOhio's Open Space to find resources created by other Ohio educators. You will also discover how to create your own education resources so that you are better able to differentiate and personalize learning for your Ohio PreK-12 students.
