X5GON partners with our two UNESCO Chairs in OER are helping launch UNESCO a Dynamic Coalition for the OER Recommendation on 2 March 2020 at UNESCO Headquarters, Paris, during the cancelled Mobile Learning Week.
The Dynamic Coalition will aim to expand and consolidate commitments to actions and strategies as well as reinforce international cooperation among all stakeholders in the 4 areas of the UNESCO OER Recommendation: i) Building the capacity of stakeholders to create, access, re-use, adapt and redistribute OER; ii) Developing supportive policy; (iii) Encouraging inclusive and equitable quality OER; and (iv) Nurturing the creation of sustainability models for OER.
X5GON is assumed to be the underlying technology for the implementation of the new Recommendation, check it on the UNESCO official website.
One of the relevant exploitation results of the X5GON project is also the work of the partners on international outreach, working with UNESCO Headquarters in preparing the UNESCO Recommendation in Open Educational Resources (OER), as well as the establishment of the International Research Centre on Artificial Intelligence in Ljubljana. The agreement to establish the Center was signed yesterday at one of the X5GON partner sites, the Ministry of Education, Science and Sport by Minister Jernej Pikalo.
Great stuff! Congrats and well done to the teams from the University of Nantes and University Osnabruck for winning the competition and to UCL and Jožef Stefan Institute for taking part and presenting their solutions, apps and great ideas to the jury. We are as well extremely grateful to our jury Prateek Sibal, Ha Cole, Husna Ahmad, Kai-Uwe Kuhnberger and our panel of experts Katie Evans, Atia Rafiq, Zineb Mekouar, and Davor Orlic for being here in Paris and selecting the winning teams.
Finally, as our great colleague, Louisa Zanoun from the British Embassy in Paris mentioned in her posts “warm thanks to the wonderful Sasha Rubel from UNESCO for her inspiring keynote speech which reminded us that it is by working and acting together – students, academics, policy & decision-makers, industry, government, NGOs – that inequalities, including gender imbalance in the tech sector, can be addressed and hopefully reduced”.
