International Day of Education on 24 January

The International Day of Education is celebrated on January 24th. The day was launched by the United Nations in December 2018 - that means since merely 2 years. Nevertheless, since the beginning of the Corona pandemic in early 2020, it has become more clear than ever that education is not only an extremely important issue, but also a very fragile one. Schoolchildren around the world have been suffering from school closures as well as learning and teaching restrictions for almost a year now. For many, this means that they can no longer continue their education or they can only do so under difficult circumstances. Therefore, the third International Day of Education deserves all the more attention and appreciation.

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!

The coronavirus epidemic of 2020 has an impact on education worldwide, as Unesco reports.

Meanwhile, 850 million students (as of March 18th, 2020) cannot go to school due to school closures due to the corona virus. On its website, Unesco provides a world map showing in which countries schools are closed either nationwide or at a regional level.

In order to remedy this situation, Unesco recommends the use of distance learning and digital learning programmes and platforms. For this purpose, an extra page with lists of e-learning platforms, apps and more is provided.

The links to the Unesco pages can be found here:
