MetaSolutions is part of a consortium which met in Athens on April 23 for launching the new European Commission funded project Open Discovery Space. The consortium consists of 51 organisations from 23 countries.
An excerpt from the press release at EurActiv (see link for the text in full length):
Open Discovery Space will engage students, teachers, parents and policymakers in a first of its kind pan-European effort to address the key challenges facing the European eLearning environment.
Open Discovery Space will achieve its ambitious goals by engaging teachers and pupils in the co-creation of innovative, new educational practices rather than simply introducing them to the “new”. In so doing, Open Discovery Space will advance the modernization of school education by increasing the digital competences of key stakeholders whilst simultaneously stimulating demand for innovative eLearning resources.
Ultimately, Open Discovery Space will engage stakeholders in the production of new user-generated educational activities in a socially-empowered, multilingual environment and empower them with integrated access to unique eLearning resources from educational repositories around the world.
