#OERs and the DigiLit Leicester project

I webinar I attended alerted me to the DigiLit Leicester project. This is a project in the city of Leicester (UK) involving secondary schools, the city council and De Montfort University. "The project focuses on supporting secondary school teaching and teaching support staff in developing their digital literacy knowledge, skills and practice, and their effective use of digital tools, environments and approaches in their work with learners."

Specifically, I was alerted to work with teachers on exploring OERs (Open Educational Resources) and there is asite for the OERs Schools conference that took place in Leicester in January 2015: there are presentations and reports here and the hashtag was #OERSCH15.
Two general sites to do with OERs that were also mentioned are: OER Map and OER Research Hub
