On Thursday, 31 October 2019, a presentation of open educational resources and a workshop with the teaching staff of the Elementary School “Brakja Ramiz & Hamid” in Suto Orizari were held. These activities are part of the Open Educational Resources project implemented by the Metamorphosis Foundation. By presenting OER concepts, their usefulness and by giving examples of their regular use in the teaching process, teachers have gained a clearer perspective of OER. After the presentation, a discussion was open on how these resources can be used in their school. During the workshop, the trainers introduced the ways and tools with which teachers can create open educational resources, as well as ways to protect them with Creative Commons licenses so that they can be shared with protected copyrights.
The workshop was interactive and everyone had the opportunity to protect their educational resources as well as try to create new ones that are properly licensed with Creative Commons licenses. At the same time, special emphasis was given to the creation of Open Educational Resources in the languages of the minority communities.
The Open Educational Resources project is supported by the Foundation Open Society- Macedonia.
