Learn about how organisms adapt to their habitats. This video is part of The Virtual School's "Adapting and Living Together" chapter within our Ecology and Environment topic.
This video was made possible by a grant from Achieving the Dream. Through this grant Bay College will create degree pathways using Open Educational Resources. Open Educational Resources are resources licensed with a Creative Commons license type.
Using this lesson worksheet, computers and a simple programming interface, students step through and build a simple program to sequentially calculate all of the variables in the Hardy Weinberg equations. By building the program in sequence it is hoped that students will learn the sequence to solve a Hardy Weinberg problem and appreciate the value and power of computer number crunching capabilities as well as sequential programming considerations.
By building a program to determine the valence of ANY element on the first three rows of the Periodic table, students learn the steps to solve the problem while learning how to program logic and think about processing data in sequence. NOTE: The worksheet includes the option of letting students create a bug that they have to fix.

How to work with Creative Commons and Open Education Resources.
This module takes a look at the advantages of OER and the Creative Commons for both instructors and their learners. Both instructors and learners can enjoy using OER as well as creating it for use by others!
Workshop presentation for CEEA 2019
This guide, created by Gail Desler, is a quick overview of Creative Commons, what the license symbols mean, how to find images that are okay to use in projects, and more!
The City X Project is an international educational workshop for 8-12 year-old students that teaches creative problem solving using 3D printing technologies and the design process. This 6-10 hour workshop is designed for 3rd-6th grade classrooms but can be adapted to fit a variety of environments. Read a full overview of the experience here: http://www.cityxproject.com/workshop/
El recurso presenta los materiales para la contextualización y valoración de los productos del Diplomado Producción de Recursos Educativos Digitales.
This course is for educators and learners who wants to understand how copyright affects use of learning materials, and how to use copyright to facilitate education. The course is focused on developing practical solutions. The reading won't always give these to you, its up to you to devise practical solutions based on the reading.
These materials aim to provide accessible and practical information about copyright – its protections, its limitations, and its role in encouraging creativity. Rather than just emphasizing what copyright prohibits, the goal here is to offer useful and positive information about what copyright allows and how students can successfully navigate and rely on copyright in their own roles as creators.
It is important to note that these materials focus on copyright in the United States. Other countries have similar frameworks, but their rules may differ on certain concepts such as fair use.
Lessons for students in grades K-12 are provided in pdf and google slide format.
This webinar complete with slides, a video, and an extra resources/Q&A briefing at the end is a wonderful place to start if you've never studied copyright before. It could accompany some basic copyright readings, or be used as a copyright primer on its own. It is geared towards a library science audience and is a straightforward introduction to copyright formation, fair use, basic licensing, and Creative Commons licensing.
This video is intended to help you choose compatible resources and choose a valid license for your work. Suppose you are developing an open educational resource (OER), and you want to use some other OER within yours. If you create a derivative work by adapting or combining works offered under Creative Common licenses, you must not only follow the terms of each of the licenses involved, but also choose a license for your work that is compatible with the other licenses
