Funding for Schools to Share Resources?

    Do the government not realise that Tes do this already IF schools had the time and inclination? In my experience schools are not that open to sharing things that have been created at their expense. It is also a potential copyright nightmare. Sure, most teachers will use a copyrighted image/song/text in their lessons and get away with it. But what if they started sharing it with other schools? Have schools really got the time to make sure everything they "share" is free of copyright infringement and/or properly attributed? I think not. Also, what if they start sharing resources that they paid for? Can of worms...

    Sharing plans is a different matter, but most plans are useless without the resources that go with them. And some of those plans maybe adapted from a paid-for scheme. More worms...

    This will not take off. Just the government making the right noises. For me, planning and resourcing is not the biggest burden on my workload anyway (and I quite enjoy it). Marking, assessing and other paperwork etc is much more of a burden (though my school is pretty good compared to some).
