The European Parliament report on New technologies and open educational resources was adopted last week in plenary session by MEPs (see text adopted; soon to be found here). following the release of the “Opening Up Education” Communication. EUCIS-LLL wishes to congratulate MEP Ivan Catalin Sorin and his team (RO, S&D) for their work and for having taken on board the majority of civil society concerns (see EUCIS-LLL position paper and amendments). The Platform is particularly satisfied to see a greater focus in the report on preserving efficiency, access, equity and inclusiveness while developing digital learning, on enhancing transversal competences as a prerequisite for developing digital skills and on broadening the scope of action to non-formal and informal learning.
