With the internet, universal access to education is possible, but its potential is hindered by increasingly restrictive copyright laws and incompatible technologies. The Open Education program at Creative Commons works to minimize these barriers, supporting the CC mission through education, advocacy and outreach on using the right licenses and open policies to maximize the benefits of open educational resources (OER) and the return on investment in publicly funded education resources. Our work cuts across all levels of education (primary – secondary – tertiary) and sectors of industry (non-profit – corporate – government). Thank you for your input, Kirstin.

Interesting and I bet your students truly enjoy your class and learn more than in any other class without a doubt. I haven’t written poems for a while now…will definitely brush up on my poetry writing skills!!
The downside to this book is that it is full of internet sources, like many internet sources they move around a bit on the web. So some of the links either are no longer there or will have to be searched for. Cool resource! I have been to the Shel Silverstein one. It’s cool! Blessed by the poetry angel!
