Through two convenings held in March and June of 2018, ISTE and New America have identified four focus areas (mentoring and support structures, enabling policies, sustainability models, and impact research) that require attention in order grow and sustain the PreK-12 OER movement. Participants will be able to find out more about the four focus areas, hear how pioneering district/state leaders are already tackling these issues, and discuss how the focus areas apply to their own stakeholders.
