    3. 3. What we believe in. ● We believe in openness in education. When educators openly share their learning and teaching material such lessons plans, worksheets, presentation, exam questions and notes with one another everybody benefits from it. ● We believe in communities of educators working together. When educators collaborate to create and adapt teaching material, share best practices and support one another they can achieve great things. ● We believe in technology. When technology is used appropriately, it can amplify individual contributions, make teachers' lives easier and provide a more engaging learning experience for learners.
    4. 4. Our work. ● Expanding the library of shared resources. By encouraging educators to share, creating resources ourselves and identifying relevant OERs created by others. ● Innovative ways to deliver the resources Finding ways of delivering these resources to learners and educators, at home and in the classroom. ● Community and Professional Development events Deliver courses, workshops and events aimed at exposing educators to open resources and technology tools as well as foster greater interaction.
