Towards a National Policy on Open Educational Resources in Bangladesh

Towards a National Policy on Open Educational Resources in Bangladesh | Educación Abierta | Scoop.it
Bangladesh is an E9 country with a huge population and a corresponding demand for quality education. Its challenges are common to those of other developing nations. Whilst the government provides free textbooks at the primary and secondary level, access to higher education is limited. This report has been prepared to support the adoption of a national open educational resources (OER) policy in Bangladesh.

Whither Moodle?

Whither Moodle? | Educación Abierta | Scoop.it
On e-Literate and even more so with our LMS market analysis service, we have called out many times the broad dominance of Moodle in terms of active installations worldwide. In every region outside of North America (US and Canada), Moodle has largest market share by far, and it is second place in North America.

But the trajectory of Moodle new implementations (higher education degree-granting institutions moving from another LMS to Moodle as the primary LMS) is striking, especially in the US and Canada as seen below, with Moodle highlighted (all data is from our partner LISTedTECH).

Why we should invest in getting more kids to read — and how to do it | Educación Abierta | Scoop.it

Data shows that huge swaths of populations in developing countries are not learning to read. Scaling up early reading interventions will be a first step toward addressing these high illiteracy rates.

Kellie Wheatley's curator insight, May 9, 9:25 PM

A great site for outlining the implementation of technology in the classroom. It outlines the most effective integration methods and appropriate situations for certain digital formats and platforms. 

It details the need for personalised learning through flexibility, progression and individuality, all of which are based off modern learning methods. In specific regards to technology, this article explains:

- virtual classrooms

- audio and video integration

- data interpreting

- student mentoring

- transitioning from consumers to producers (more hands-on)

- truth vs untruth

- social environments of learning (an online presence)

- learning camps (a place to find individuality)

- transitioning through schools (students, environments and        teachers)


These ideas are important to consider, particularly for pre-service teachers like myself. These are key aspects to students being able to move forward in regards to technology, and this publication outlines all of that. The aspects which I found most beneficial, and that I could relate to were the transitioning from consumers to producers and teaching through transitions of the schooling system. Both of these promote a more hands-on classroom with students being able to apply their skills, while being taught and supported by their teacher.

Darren Schmidt's comment, May 14, 8:42 AM
Are these trends, and not technologies?
Terry Smith's curator insight, June 9, 5:32 PM
I re-scooped this article specifically because it deals with how technology has influenced personalized learning particularly in online environments.  The article goes through the various ways that technology is reshaping, adapting and enhancing how students learn.

Open Educational Resources Fill Gap for Underserved Students

Open Educational Resources Fill Gap for Underserved Students | Educación Abierta | Scoop.it
During the past decade, the idea of education as a 21st-century civil rights issue has surged. Many of our nation's public schools that serve large numbers of low-income communities frequently face funding challenges that result in inadequate facilities and educational resources. While efforts have been made to address these disparities, one of the cornerstones of a quality education has largely gone overlooked: access to curricula, textbooks, and other instructional and self-directed learning materials that drive rigorous academics.
