The Global OER Remix Challenge is an opportunity for educators to find, use, remix, and share open educational resources (OER) that bring science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM) in their teaching. The Challenge will take place during the 2013-2014 school year and include participants from around the world. It is facilitated by ISKME and uses OER Commons as a platform to share and organize resources and publish remixed curriculum.
Participants collaborate in ISKME's Teachers as Makers Remix Lab at Maker Faire to brainstorm, prototype, present, and document new ideas for teaching and learning. Each participant remixes an Open Educational Resource (OER) that will be shared on OER Commons.
Open licensing of instructional materials such as textbooks, videos, and other related resources makes possible free sharing and remixing which reduces cost barriers for students. Creative Commons provides the legal infrastructure for easily sharing creative works including instructional materials but how do the different licenses indicate a resource can be re-used. Join us for an interactive session of playbook license scenarios where you test your knowledge of the OER re-use based on license type.
