MORE THAN 25,000 NEW INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS ADDED TO OPEN SPACE

AUTHOR // Matt YaukTHURSDAY, 21 DECEMBER 2023

INFOhio has recently added more than 25,000 open-access instructional materials to Open Space. This substantial update includes a diverse range of content, from interactive lesson plans and engaging games to comprehensive textbooks and informative videos for every subject and grade level. The resources have undergone review by INFOhio staff, underscoring INFOhio’s commitment to fostering accessible and high-quality learning experiences for students and teachers alike.

Previously, a portion of these materials were accessible through Educator Tools, as part of a collection provided by Knovation (ACT). 

Check out all of the recently added materials in Open Space, or start your exploration with one of the following popular content creators:

For educators looking to maximize the potential of these instructional materials and gain proficiency with the platform, INFOhio offers a comprehensive professional development class focused on Open Space. This course is designed to empower educators with the skills to effectively find, use, and curate materials within Open Space, enhancing their teaching strategies and student engagement in the process.

Open Space is a curriculum curation and collaboration tool from INFOhio that empowers educators to build community through groups, access curated collections, search for freely accessible instructional materials, and curate and share resources that promote innovative and collaborative learning. Have questions? INFOhio is always here to help. For questions, comments, and additional support, contact us at support.infohio.org.

Integrating OER into a Class

The Using INFOhio Tools to Design Learning Experiences post on the Teach With INFOhio blog summarized the steps to design a learning experience from scratch using pre-existing materials. Follow these steps:

  1. Start with the learning objectives and/or standards for the topic.
  2. Analyze your current curriculum’s achievement of the learning objectives. Identify any gaps in information, extraneous information, and areas for improvement. 
  3. Search reliable sources using keywords, subject areas, grade levels, and material type to find the most relevant content.
  4. Identify which materials and activities should be done face-to-face and which can be completed online.
  5. Plan the instructional timeline and add the materials and activities to a module within your learning management system.
  6. Reflect on the lesson and revise.  

As you look for content, remember to consider quality and usability. Items appearing in Open Space have achieved the standards in our Open Space Submission Rubric. Other frameworks to consider for reference include EdReports and the Achieve OER rubrics. 

Ensure your materials and activities are accessible by all learners so nobody is left out. Consider these resources on accessibility and inclusive design: Universal Design for Learning (UDL) Guidelines and Making Learning Accessible for All: An Educator's Guide.

Interested in hearing other educators’ perspective on OER in the classroom? Listen to these podcast episodes:

Join Open Space and start your curriculum building journey. Take a deeper dive into how to find and purposefully integrate OER and other resources into your curriculum by checking out the blog Using INFOhio Tools to Design Learning Experiences.

Schools using INFOhio's Library Services Platform will be able to search the My Library tab to find library catalog items and licensed and purchased eBooks from INFOhio.

The Digital Video Collection contains more than 2600 videos to support Ohio's Learning Standards and provide professional learning best practices for educators.
