Subject: OER in Poland: USD 14m for a national open textbook program

Dear all,

We have good news from Poland.

Today Polish Council of Ministers adopted a  regulation concerning the implementation of „Digital School” program for computerization of Polish schools and raising ICT competences.  Pilot of the project aimed for 380 schools in Poland will  equip them with hardware (tablets, computers for students, additional equipment). Also digital and free (under Creative Commons Attribution or compatible) textbooks for grades 4-6 in primary schools (K4-K6) will be created (45 millions  PLN - approx. USD 14m -  is assigned for textbooks). This is the first major government project in Poland which creates Open Educational Resources especially textbooks. -- dr Alek Tarkowski koordynator / public lead Creative Commons Polska / Poland www: identica: twitter:

Wow! That's wonderful news. I wonder if they use an ePortfolio system to document meeting ITC competencies?
