In my school district we have decided to start uploading our curriculum documents to OER Commons so that anyone has access to them.  Our teachers have done a lot of work on rubrics and learning scales for a learner-centered model.  We will be pointing our teachers to these documents in OER commons to give them exposure to OERs and the platform OER commons.  Our next move will then to ask teachers to start submitting their resources to appropriate grade-level folders in our group.

We are doing much of the same thing in Utah.   We are inviting teachers to upload resources to our Utah OER group as suggested resources.  Then, as part of our normal instructional materials review process, we will vet them and then link them to our Recommended Instructional Materials System database, so that teachers can select resources that have been recommended by our State Board of Education.  I will then go back into the OER Commons database and tag the vetted items.
