This open draft is based on the UNESCO Paris OER Declaration, but extends its scope to focus on open education in general, rather than OER in particular.

“While open education is primarily about changing
culture and practice, education technology can be
a key enabler. Scotland has long been at the
forefront of technology supported education

shift required to embed open education practice
across all sectors of Scottish education.”

• I’ve never heard of open licences/OER
• I don’t see the benefit of sharing resources
