Open educational resources (OER), that is educational materials that are in the public domain, have gained much attention in higher education and more recently in K-12 teaching and learning. A recent US study sought to find out whether open educational resources, specifically open textbooks, can be considered as high quality as copyright-restricted alternatives for K-12 educators, and determine whether the adaptation of these textbooks to local or classroom needs makes any difference in evaluation of their quality.
The 2015 OECD report, Students, computers and learning - making the connection has generated significant, and somewhat polarised, commentary. It claims to provide an internationally comparative analysis of the digital skills that students have acquired, and of the learning environments designed to develop these skills. The report is based on data derived from the OECD Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) and other 2012 OECD reports.
