Museum Resources

What are Open Educational Resources (OER)?

Open educational resources are educational resources that are in the public domain or are permitted for free use by others.

As an educator, I consistently use many of these museum resources in my classroom. These resources are written by highly knowledgeable museum educators for use with students.  I’ve spent many hours researching the available resources online and will be adding to this list in the coming months.

You can also search a curated collection of many museum resources through the link below.

The link will take you to a google search site where I curated the collection of resources.

Let me know how you use these resources in your classroom and if you have a favorite that I should be adding to my list.  Looking forward to hearing from you!
