A national community of educators and leaders who use and support open educational resources and practices (OER/OEP) to equitably improve teaching and learning for all.

This hub provides ways for the community to connect, share, and co-create.

Why #GoOpen

The #GoOpen National Network is a national community of educators and leaders who support K-12 open education through knowledge sharing and strategic action around practice and policy.

Why OER? With increased access to high-quality, openly licensed educational materials:

  • Students have equitable access to up-to-date, culturally relevant content
  • Teachers are empowered to tailor learning materials to connect with students’ individual needs and experiences
  • Education systems can reallocate dollars for traditional textbooks to other pressing needs

We aim to build capacity and elevate OER through collaboration, knowledge sharing, and strategic action by:

  • Highlighting case studies of OER implementation across states and districts nationwide
  • Convening working and interest groups around key topics 
  • Gathering evidence and advocating for the benefits of open education
