The X5GON partner at the University of Nantes, has released in his role of UNESCO Chair in teacher training technologies with OER and international report for UNESCO. The report argues that as Artificial intelligence (AI) is taking an important part in our lives, the question of educating towards AI becomes increasingly relevant. The report showcases X5GON as a potential solution forwards mainstreaming OER. Download the report here.
As part of the Education and Training 2020 (ET 2020) Open Method of Coordination, the Commission and Member States cooperate in the form of Working Groups. The primary focus of the ET2020 Working Group on Digital Education: Learning, Teaching and Assessment (DELTA) is to benefit the Member States in the work of furthering policy development through mutual learning and the identification of good practices. On this meeting we presented X5GON through the lenses of the 5Xs, and discussed and exchanged experiences and opinions on Artificial Intelligence and its implications for education.
The UNESCO OER Recommendation was approved by UNESCO member states on 28th May, by consensus. Its final step for approval will take place at the UNESCO General Assembly in November, 2019. X5GON partners had two representatives in the meeting (and in multiple side meetings) for the last two days, and we are pleased with the outcome. Creative Commons, the UNESCO OER Chairs, and many other IGOs and NGOs in the meeting were able to work with UNESCO members states to significantly edit some of the unhelpful definitions and improve other text in the document. The final text of the document will be now coordinated and translated by UNESCO and they will publish it prior to the November meeting.
