Next Steps

Consider the why, what, who, when & how of GoOpenNC, and determine what next step(s) you plan to take.

District: Iredell-Statesville Schools

Team: Curriculum Innovation

Critical Path


Consider: Why is OER a value-add to our district and teams?  

Why will framing be an important component of successful engagement?

What instruction goals should we focus on first?

How can this supplement existing initiatives in the district?


Action Items:


Consider: Can we leverage or enhance our Virtual ISS & iAcademy to build this out?

Would be helpful to me if I can spend more time learning about the features and functionality of the microsite?

In my district/school, once we have created openly-licensed content that could be added to the microsite, who will own the process?  Do I need to consider the process for making this happen?

How will the PD for this fit into existing PD development and roll-out? Can this be part of our Canvas PD and roll-out?


Action Items:


Consider: I know there are OER champions already in my district/school. How can I best connect with them to discuss GoOpenNC?

How can I best determine other instructional leaders in my district/school who can join me as thought partners as we investigate OER/OEP?

Who will own this process? 

How does this wrap into existing PLC frameworks? iQuest development? 


Action Items:


Consider: When are there opportunities for teachers and instructional leaders to engage in professional learning related to OER?

When the district/school reviews and selects instructional materials, can we could consider OER and how those materials can be utilized?

What existing PLC frameworks will this fit into? 

Can we leverage the development cycles for Virtual ISS and iAcademy as part of this?


Action Items:


Consider: I need to spend time considering how teachers in my district/school are currently selecting instructional materials, and what supports they need to effectively select high quality, standards aligned resources.

How can we best support teachers as they find, vet, use, and create OER.

Are there opportunities for teachers to curate and align OER to standards?

What existing PLC frameworks will this fit into?
