Open Educational Resources

OER or open educational resources have a positive side but also a negative side. In my opinion the positive side would be OER is a great resource for both students and teachers. Looking from a teachers point-of-view OER is a great alternative way to teach. From the students perspective OER offers the most important thing, little to no cost. The downfall is teachers or future educators might become dependent on this resource. It scares me that the only thing future kids might be learning is all based off the internet. I feel going to school to become a teacher you should actually learn what you are being taught and not rely solely on the cyber world to do the work for you.
