OERs - Open Educational Resources

ESTA - The Earth Sciences Teachers Association met at BGS Keyworth on the 28th - 30th September and the GB/3D team ran a demonstration of  laser scanning and 3D fossil models.

The project will produce an "OER" or Open Educational Resource using the 3D models and images. This is intended to be a "proof of concept", and the hope is that others will use the models and images to produce many other OERs. We are not sure yet whether our OER will be aimed at primary, secondary or higher education - or if there is sufficient interest, we might produce one for each sector.

We have already recruited some volunteers to help guide the work, including some at the ESTA meeting, but we are looking for one or two more any level. The work will be mainly via email and the web, but might include an odd trip to BGS Keyworth. If you have a suitable background and are interested in becoming part of an exciting project, please email me through the BGS website at:
