Some links I always share

I’m at the TeacherFutures workshop (pre-PCF9) organised by the Commonwealth of Learning. Really interesting conversations with colleagues from Cameroon, Jamaica, Kenya, Kiribati, Nigeria, Uganda, Sierra Leone, South Africa.

In these conversations, I usually refer to a few Open Educational Resources, particularly for teacher professional development. These include the following teacher professional development resources:

These programmes are not the only such programmes, but they are distinct in that they provide concrete resources that are publicly available under Creative Commons.

There are a couple of other programmes I refer to. One is OpenUpResources (https://openupresources.org/), producing an open mathematics curriculum (in the USA) as well as Kolibri (https://learningequality.org/kolibri/), an innovative hybrid online/offline learning management system (with similar idea to some of the ideas advocated around 10 years ago here).
