The X5GON project was present at the 2018 Open Education Global Conference, where the world meets to discuss how opening education helps achieve universal access, equity, innovation and opportunity in education. We presented the design of our platform and attracted the interest of the edtech participants, and our policy work on the UNESCO Recommendation in OER.
X5GON partners JSI and MIZS have been working with UNESCO Headquarters in preparing the UNESCO Recommendation in Open Educational Resources (OER). The draft was formunated with a group of open education experts from UNESCO, X5GON and other researchers and practitioners from all world regions. UNESCO now calls for advice and comments regarding the revision of the draft.
This Recommendation will be recognized globally in the 195 Member States of UNESCO and is created in order to help Member States to formulate and execute adequate policy frameworks also adressing the use of technologies in OER, to support international cooperation among researchers and encourage new entrants to OER. It builds on the Ljubljana OER Action Plan, a product of the 2nd World OER Congress where X5GON was co-hosting the satellite conference on Artificial Intelligence: Research, Technology and Business in OER.
Our project is at its core resaerch based, but it designs its technology roadmap in order to support this new educational policy which calls for new technologies in OER. Therefore we are inviting you to the online consultation process to contribute to the draft which is now open until 1 June 2018.
The 2nd meeting of the X5GON project took place from the 9th to 12th of April in Cumberland Lodge, near London. The consortium presented the work done in all workpackages as a team effort and hosted two of its advisory board members, TJ Bliss, Director of Development and Strategy at Wiki Education, and Pierre Dillenbourrg, Computer-Human Interaction Lab for Learning & Instruction at EPFL.
