OER for School Librarians
Open Education Resources (OER) are paving the way for equity and access to high quality instructional materials. This interactive session will provide participants with an overview of Creative Commons licensing that allows OER materials to be reused, remixed, redistributed, revised, and retained. Participants will then dig into high-quality OER instructional materials. Finally, participants will be introduced to the Nebraska OER Commons Hub and invited to join the Nebraska School Librarians Group within the Hub. Launched in the Spring of 2018, the Nebraska OER Commons Hub allows educators to create, share, and collaborate. Building your PLN in the open resource world begins here!

There’s a Choice Board for that….well maybe not, but I can make one!
Explore what a choice board is and how you can incorporate it (quickly) into your lessons. Through this presentation, I will share what a choice board is, how you can use them in your lesson, and ways to create your own.
