  • 1. Presents
  • 2. Adopting Standards and Specifications for Educational Content Dr. David Massart, EUN ASPECT Project Coordinator
  • 3. Why do we need standards and specifications?
  • 4. Facilitate discovery of learning contents Minimise costs associated with repurposing of materials Access to the highest-quality learning resources available Impact on learning outcomes and quality of learning experience Advertise learning contents by making them easily identifiable, discoverable and usable. Secure investments by developing standard-based infrastructures
  • 5. Already today
  • 6.  
  • 7. Why raising awareness of standards and specifications is not enough?
  • 8.  
  • 9.  
  • 10.
    • We are convinced that, if properly structured and managed, new best practice networks (BPN) frameworks can help redress the ‘disconnect’ between standards’ organisations and the educational community by:
    • focussing on implementing standards as well as raising awareness, and
    • supporting emerging standards and specifications that map to and are influenced by best practice related to the use of ICT in schools.
    • The ASPECT project
