  17. 17. Since  2002  UNESCO  and  OER  are  providing  Governments  and  Ins7tu7ons  with  a  range  of   services  including  the  development  of:     •  Policy  Guidelines  for  higher  educa7on.   •  Online  PlaTorms  and  tools  for  sharing  OERs.   •  Online  Communi#es  of  Prac7ce  for  teachers,  learners,  and  experts.     •  Research  Papers  and  other  publica#on.     •  Large  projects.  HewleJ  OER  Project  (2013  –  2014)   •  Large  events    (World  OER  Congress).     •  Partnerships  to  strengthen  the  implementa7on  of  successful  OER  policies.    
  18. 18.             •  UNESCO  and  Open  Educa7onal  Resources  rela7onship  began  in  2002  during  a   UNESCO  Forum  of  experts.     •  In  2012  UNESCO  and  the  Commonwealth  of  Learning  organized  the  World   OER  Congress  at  the  UNESCO  HQ  in  Paris  from  20  –  22  June.   •  It  was  preceded  by  6  worldwide  regional  forums  to  gather  contribu7ons  from   all  Educa7on  stakeholders.     •  More  than  400  delegates  unanimously  approved  the  Paris  OER  Declara#on.     •  The  Declara7on  provides  a  10-­‐point  Strategy.     •  The  Declara7on  marks  a  historic  moment  in  the  growing  movement  for  Open   Educa7onal  Resources  and  calls  on  governments  worldwide  to  openly  license   educa7onal  materials  for  public  use.    
  19. 19.   •  The  WSIS  OER  Community  encourage  prac77oners,  researchers,  decision-­‐  and   policy-­‐makers,  teachers,  and  learners  worldwide.   •  With  more  than  3300  members  WSIS  KC  OER  Community  provides  a  strategic   opportunity   to   improve   the   quality   of   educa7on   as   well   as   facilitate   policy   dialogue,  knowledge  sharing  and  capacity  building.       hJp://wsis-­‐  
  20. 20.         •  There   is   the   opportunity   to   teach   girls   and   boys    to  develop  mobile  apps  using  mobile   phones.     •  Lack   of   PCs   in   developing   countries   precludes  mobile-­‐based  tools.     •  The   number   of   smartphones   increases   exponen#ally   in   developing  countries.     •  The   next   one   billion   new   internet   connec#ons   will   be   from   mobile   devices   in   the   hands   of   young   people   from   developing  countries  
  21. 21. The  challenge:   Engage  young  people,  specially  girls,  to  acquire  the  high-­‐level  skills   to  develop,  promote,  and  sell  locally  relevant  mobile  apps  that  solve   local  issues  of  sustainable  development  and  provide  employment.     HOW?         Developing  OER  training   materials.         Training  the  ICT  teachers.     Developing  the  1st  Global   List  of  App  Compe##ons     Training  of  Youth  Trainers.

  25. 25. Siri,  I  want  to   become  a   professional   photographer.   What  should  I  do?   “I want to be a photographer, what should I do?” I found this Open University course (T189), that you can enrolled to in the regional centre 2 miles from here (cost £427). “OK, anything free I can try first?” There is an Introduction to Photography course on MIT OCW, and a Computational Photography course on coursera starting soon.
