OpenEd: additional notes for weeks 2-3-4

I’ve just read the Karen‘s note about the lack of OER for primary education: actually, from “our” reports (specially Hewlett) the focus seems to be in HE, but there are already some working examples of OER and …OER-like resources for schools: for examples, in Italy the GOLD database (managed by Indire, a public-funded pedagogical documentation agency) stores good practices and experiences described by teachers for other teachers. Furthermore, a quick search on oercommons site, produces near 3000 results for “primary level”.

    I wish I knew Italian so I could read some of the GOLD materials!

    The problem with the OER Commons stuff is the same problem I have with site like Curriki. It needs a lot of “gardening” to improve the quality. Both have a lot of mis-indexing (e.g. graduate courses labeled as “primary”), content that is not really “open” (e.g. traditional copyrighted materials), and links to web sites that are not really learning resources.

    I’m sure that things will get better though as more people work on this.
