Hi Werner,

Please see below some links from OER - OEPs projects that include citizenship as part of their context.





Also, please see below some papers that have already discussed the subject and that might be interesting for you.

An article by Piedra et al. from Loja, Ecuador where they analyse citizenship in the open education context

Subject: [Open-education] OER in Civic Education / Citizenship Competencies

Dear all, best regards from Santiago, Chile.

I am working on a discussion paper to think about Civic Education / Citizenship Competencies development in our societies, marked and changed by the digital sphere.  For shure, openness/open licencing will be a key component, as it blends perfect with participatory and collaborative practices to promote these competencies.  But I haven't met yet OERs, OEPs nor initiatives that explicit openess/open licencing as a key component.  So related to Civic Education / Citizenship Competencies:

  *   any OER or OEP to highlight?
  *   any innovative learning digital technology practice to promote?
  *   any programs being deployed to feature?

Any thoughts about open education/openness and its role within civic and citizenship will be most welcomed!!  Best wishes,

Werner Westermann
