Apologies for cross posting,

Dear Open Education Colleagues,

I am writing to ask you to share experience of your countries on
computerizing primary schools and introducing OER among teachers.

Currently, there are several issues in this field in Kyrgyzstan (as well as
among other Central Asian countries

- national policies are mainly oriented towards infrastructure and seldom
encourage the development of educational content.
- educators lack awareness about the availability of OER and the
opportunities they provide.
- most people are not familiar with intellectual property rights issues;
national IPR
regulations are currently incompatible with open licenses.
- emerging pedagogical approaches are yet to be adopted by educators
- the reward/encouragement system for introducing OER into the educational
practice is non-existent at educational institutions, and the provision of
educational content is not considered during instructors’ performance

We are planning to contribute to the improvement of students' achievements
and the quality of educational services through the implementation ICT and
capacity building of teachers in the use of ICT in the educational process.

I would appreciate any comments, recommendations and materials to make our
project sustainable.

Thank you.
Best regards,
