Open Educational Resources (OERs) are an emerging alternative to commercial textbooks, but how do new technologies compare to traditional options? Dr. Virginia Clinton joins us to discuss her recent papers “Savings without sacrifice: a case report on open-source textbook adoption” and “Reading from paper compared to screens: A systematic review and meta‐analysis”.
Later, we read a study that examined what kinds of supports teachers in high-achieving classrooms provide for student metacognition. We find ways to get more out of our interactions with students by explicitly supporting how they think about their learning.
