I would like to use OER in my classroom, but I cannot afford to use materials that are not reconciled with my state standards. Are there any OER available for which this has been done?
Yes, and more are being created all the time. For textbooks, you might look at the listings on the CK12 Foundation's website, many of which have also been reviewed and approved by the California Learning Resource Network's Digital Textbook Program. In the future, expect to see more and more OER evaluated and tagged by government or other authorized agencies for alignment to state and other standards. As these data become more widely available, we will be exposing them as key search terms in DiscoverEd. You may also find some standards-aligned materials on OER Commons and other search engines.
