OPEN EDUCATION TECHNOLOGY
INFRASTRUCTURE FOR THE NEXT 100 YEARS
We are people from all parts of the globe united by a desire to collaborate on building sustainable, long-lasting, open technology that supports all kinds of education projects.
We first met in Barcelona, November 2019.
We represent open source software projects, government education ministries, development organisations, academics, educational institutions and learners.
If this was Star Wars, and profit-seeking EdTech companies were the galactic empire, then we’d like to be the Jedi Council who help the resistance.
OPEN EDTECH PRINCIPLES
You can adapt the technology to fit better in your context
Good open projects aim to follow, or set, sensible technology and community standards
It works in your country, in your language
Use any service provider, and switch to another at any time with minimal disruption – or look after it yourself
Open technology developers have a sustainable business model that users can trust
Open technology projects are designed so that they can carry on even if the org that started them disappears
