St Paul’s is co-ordinating a newly formed network representing 12 city secondary and special schools. Network members will support their schools in developing staff digital literacy in relation to copyright and the creation and use of electronic resources, building on the council’s work on open educational resources (OER). They will also provide support for other BSF and primary schools across the city who want to develop their work around the use, creation and sharing digital resources.
On the 10th of September, St. Paul’s Catholic School joined the growing list of schools in Leicester who have adopted an OER policy. This gives their staff permission to share work under a Creative Commons license and promotes Open Education amongst staff, pupils and stakeholders.
