In June 2016, the I-LINC project hosted a Learning Event on the eTwinning platform, titled First Steps for use of technology in the classroom – Towards Digital Citizenship and Inclusion, aiming at introducing educators of all levels to the concept of technology as enabler and of IT tools as means to support engagement and participation.
Module 2 focused on selection and storage of digital content and LangOER was invited to present its Going Open methodology and the resources for teachers created for the training activities in several European countries, within the webinar Open Source Education – make & share.
The webinar was introduced by an overview of the definition and conceptualization of openness, Open Educational Resources and Practices, as well as the model of open licenses and the most common ones.
The second part focused on the process of finding, reusing and re-sharing OERs from the educators’ perspective, with hands-on approach. We presented some practical strategies for searching, using and adapting materials, contextualised examples of application and useful repositories, such as Open Education Europa, Learning Resource Exchange for schools (which also hosts the LangOER resources for language learning) and Scientix (for STEM-related subjects).
The slides of the webinar are available here.
