Open EdTech Subgroup

Main Researchers



Education is experiencing a huge transformation with the introduction of Infomation and Communication Technologies (ICT). The new Educational Technologies (EdTech) have a huge potential for improving education.

But we need Open EdTech - based on the open-source and open-knowledge paradigms - to ensure that the innovations in education are going to be available for everybody, fair and democratic. 

Our objectives are to participate in the development and evolution of Open Source Technologies for Education, standards of interoperability and new methodologies and practices. Last but not least we are interested in the ethical and legal aspects of the application of new technologies to education, especially with regards to issues related to data ethics, privacy, and confidentiality.
