Open Educational Resources and Open Education

We need a life long learning system that shares knowledge quickly and efficiently for the benefit of all.

Building on the Paris UNESO Open Education Declaration all sectors of Scottish education engaged in both  formal and informal learning should be asked to embrace the  simple principles of the UNESCO Open Education Declaration  or those highlighted in the Scottish Open Education Declaration


Why the contribution is important

Scotland has a distinctive and highly regarded tradition of education.  Education is widely regarded as a shared common good,  the benefits of which can be extended both nationally and internationally through the adoption of open education policies and practice across all sectors of Scottish education.

    I would like to see the word flexible in here. How can we utilise technologies to engage with all types of learning needs?

    I agree...

    Scotland has a long tradition of developing its own tools and systems for educational training and knowledge sharing. It seems like the wide availability of low cost and highly effective knowledge sharing tools marks a point in time when it would be right for Scotland to transform and embrace and endorse open tools that are already out there.

    The measure of success for tools for education should be the achievements that come through their widespread use: not the features of the tools themselves.
