Maryland #GoOpen

The state of Maryland officially committed to the federal #GoOpen Movement on February 26, 2016.  As part of this commitment a repository was created to house resources aligned to Maryland standards at:

Maryland's OER Project: PreK-12 

Maryland OER Project: PreK-12 Ensuring Equity and Excellence with high quality resources.

Maryland is excited to collaborate and share free openly licensed digital resources with all national stakeholders. We feel that this effort has:

  • Identified current and relevant quality resources that support UDL practices
  • Reduced redundancy of efforts
  • Provided engaging and interactive resources
  • Supported personalized teaching and learning
  • Provided anytime, anywhere access

As a #GoOpen state, Maryland has:

  • Implemented a statewide technology strategy that includes the use of openly licensed resources
  • Developed and maintains a statewide repository
  • Participated in a community of practice 
  • Created a webpage to share the commitment to and progress for #GoOpen
