A Renewed Pledge for #GoOpen

Open educational resources have garnered more attention during the pandemic as educators and district leaders sought to find instructional materials to accommodate the pivot to remote learning. For some, it was the first time hearing about these materials. For others, it was an invitation to the larger K-12 open community and the #GoOpen Initiative. In a joint effort to continue building awareness and implementation of OER, the Institute for the Study of Knowledge Management in Education (ISKME) and the US. Department of Education (ED) are announcing the new #GoOpen pledge and a two-day virtual convening surrounding OER later this fall.
