Share.School is an Open Educational Resources Repository that houses teacher created templates and activities in digital formats. If this site had a tagline, it might be “Teachers Share Freely with Teachers.” The site was built and is maintained by teachers in the Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board.
The most common formats on the site are Explain Everything and Book Creator files but we are working on adding additional formats such as H5P content and GAFE templates.
As a publicly funded institution, we need to ensure that our innovations can be shared and replicated — not only for students in Hamilton — but for students across Ontario and beyond. Sharing our work openly achieves that, whether through blogging, through Twitter, or through openly accessible resources like our new OER site.
A big thank you to the teachers (and now students) who have embraced this site. We are just scratching the surface of what’s possible with this space.
