Amendments to this page

Needs to be more informative for people coming to this cold....

  • Are you a teacher?
  • Are you a policy maker?
  • Are you a lecturer?

Ideas from HN for improving key messages on this page:

- Move credits for authoring to the bottom - Make the first bit of text you read make it clear what the resource is and who it is for - Add links to the ‘contact us’ bit re: collaboration - Have fewer links in the first paragraph - Have less information on this page - Reduce section 3 (overview of the resource) to a bullet list - there are at least 3 overviews of one sort or another on this page - reduce. - Consider excluding units at the bottom - they are already at the top

Possible new intro text:

Welcome to the OER4Schools professional learning resource for teachers. The resource is a complete and free-to-use professional development programme for developing interactive pedagogy with and without Information and Communication Technology. The resource was developed in a Zambian primary school context but is widely applicable in other contexts to improve teaching and learning.

The resource has been developed by the University of Cambridge Centre for Commonwealth Education as part of the OER4Schools project [embed link to page].
