Facilitate K–12 Educators' Adoption of Open Educational Resources: Implementing Renewable Assignments

Mon, April 20, 12:25 to 1:55pm, Virtual Room


Existing literature provides limited evidence on efficient ways of implementing renewable assignments in fostering K-12 teachers’ awareness and intentions of using OERs. Teachers seem more likely to accept technology only if they have experience of adapting, creating, and publishing OERs. This research thus intended to fill this gap by piloting renewable assignment in a graduate-level instructional technology course opened to in-service educators. Referring to the works on TAM, this mixed methods research hoped to investigate whether working on renewable assignments significantly influenced each factor that mattered for K-12 educators’ intention of accepting OERs in K-12 curriculum and understand teachers’ perceptions might be influenced by factors beyond TAM dimensions.
