Students are in all our minds with different roles: learners; lifelong learners; next generation of decision makers; today’s and tomorrow’s citizens. We are all working for them, but still students often have little or no voice in these contexts. There is a growing debate around the type of skills, competencies, knowledge and attitudes required for them to constructively face global challenges, to become active citizens and participants in the knowledge economy. What kind of future do students envision for education? What is the role of Open Education in this process? But first: are students aware of“Open Education”? Are they engaging in “Open Practices”? If yes, how? Are they actively contributing to the creation of knowledge and growth of Open Contents? Would they, if they knew? Moreover: would it be worth it, in their perspective? Let’s ask them. Students are the protagonists of this keynote, and the work behind the scenes to support their learning success is the other part of the story we are going to tell together.
Here you can find the script of our keynote, with links to the students video, the slides, our projects:
