How can Open Educational Resources improve American K-12 education?
The OER movement is nascent through growing, perhaps where Creative Commons was 5 years ago. To date its focus has been at the university level, and if it wasn't for initial efforts like the MIT OCW project we wouldn't all now be able to have a wide range of OER media available on iTunes from many universities. But the K-12 space has it's own unique issues and needs: infrastructure, technical literacy gaps between students and teachers, and current educational policy which is both underfunded (and strongly critiqued) and taxing on classroom teachers' time. How can OER help today's K-12 teacher?
