    New webdossier: Cyber attacks on education - a worldwide problem

    Ein Laptop mit ganz vielen Zahlen und einem Schlosssymbol.

    We admit that the topic of our new dossier is not a very festive one given that Christmas is coming soon.  But it is a topic that has directly concerned us at the DBS and DIPF Institute over the past few weeks, as we ourselves have been victims of a cyber attack. Education Worldwide took the opportunity to research the topic of cybercrime in the field of education. It turned out that education is one of the most popular targets for hackers around the world. The sources we compiled for our webdossier will tell you the reasons for this, it will present you facts and statistics, and it will show you some examples of how different countries are dealing with this problem in the education sector.

    New webdossier: Education in Spain

    It's already a tradition at Education Worldwide and the German Education Server, whose physical headquarters are in Frankfurt: Every year at the Frankfurt Book Fair we present a dossier on the education system in the respective Guest of Honour country. This year Spain is the special guest of the Book Fair. In 2017, the escalating dispute over the independence of the Catalonia region caused a stir - Education Worldwide also published a dossier on educational issues within the conflict in Catalonia at the time. Since then it has become a little more quiet around Spain. Nevertheless, the country remains exciting, not only from a literary point of view. You can find information about the education system in Spain in our web dossier.

    In the new web dossier, Education Worldwide has compiled internet resources on the subject of digitisation and digital education in relation to inclusion. The respective web resources examine the extent to which digitisation can support inclusion, but also what barriers there can be to using digital media and new technologies, especially for people with disabilities. We compiled this web dossier in two different ways. You can browse the links to the selected websites either by subject or sorted by source type.

    Special Focus: Digital Education in Ukraine

    During the war in Ukraine in 2022, many Ukrainians had to flee to other countries. Once there, the question of schooling for the Ukrainian children quickly arose. In this context, Ukraine's good digital education infrastructure was often praised. It allows Ukrainian children to go on learning in their own language with their own curricula, their own teachers, and maybe their own classmates - no matter whether they may still be in Ukraine or in a totally different country. "Education Worldwide" therefore adds a new section to its webdossier on "Education in Ukraine" which provides information on digital education in Ukraine.

    Chart of the month: Worldwide attacks on education in the context of armed conflicts (2015-2020)

    The chart documents the number of incidents of attacks on education from 2015 to 2020 in selected countries in the context of armed conflicts. (Link to the original chart)

    With regard to current events (war in Ukraine 2022), our chart of the month highlights the number of attacks on educational institutions in selected countries between 2015 and 2020. As you can see, Ukraine was already included in the sad statistics before 2022. The graph is part of the Unesco Global Education Monitoring Report (GEM Report) 2021/22. The data used for the graph are taken from "Education Under Attack 2020", a report published by the Global Coalition to Protect Education from Attack (GCPEA). There is a "Country Profile" for each country examined. We provide links to the publications of Unesco and the GCPEA as well as to the country profile on Ukraine below.

    The Unesco (United Nations Educational, Scientific, Cultural and Communication Organisation) and the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) are two of the largest international players when it comes to reports, studies and other publications on education. Both have therefore published several interesting publications on the subject of the corona pandemic (COVID-19) and education. We link their publication lists here. The literature is usually free of costs and freely accessible. Sometimes it is also available in different languages.

    At the end of the year, we completely revised and updated our international OER dossier. The OER movement can now look back on several years of activity. Many projects have now expired. But many new ones have also been created, building on the knowledge gained from older projects ("lessons learned"). Networks and repositories with OER material have emerged. Much literature has also been published on OER, including critical voices. You can find all of this in our new web dossier on international perspectives on OER. We hope you enjoy reading!
