According to educational philosopher Dewey (1933) ?we are all knowers who reflect on experience, confront the unknown, make sense of it, and take action?. Johnson & Golombek (2002) argue that teachers? reflections can be viewed as mechanisms for change: as teachers construct their own explanations of teaching, they create knowledge and use that knowledge within the contexts of their classrooms, gradually rethinking their pedagogical practices. Understanding these reflections from the teachers? perspective is important to understand teachers as agents of change.
During the course of the Hewlett-funded OER Research Project and in collaboration with the Flipped Learning Network and Vital Signs, one of Gulf of Maine Research Institute science programs, reflective stories were collected from K12 teachers engaged in reusing, revising, remixing and redistributing open educational resources. In this presentation I explore these narratives as indicators of change in teachers? classroom practices and pedagogies.
