The third annual meeting of the UNESCO ICT Competency Framework for Teachers (ICT-CFT) OER Network focused on the importance of Open Educational Resources (OER) to address COVID-19 challenges worldwide, leveraging the UNESCO OER Recommendation adopted in 2019. The meeting, held on 10 February 2021, brought together 25 experts representing over 13 Ministries of Education and tertiary education institutions providing teacher training to 12 countries.
This online meeting was organized by UNESCO and involved experts and governmental representatives from Djibouti, Egypt, Morocco, Mozambique, Nigeria, the Philippines, Rwanda, South Africa, Togo, Tunisia, Turkey and the United States of America, as well as representatives from UNESCO Field Offices in Cairo, Dakar and Yaoundé.
Participants to the meeting highlighted that during the past year, online availability of the Network’s resources, as well as capacity building to create, use, re-use and adapt OERs to support teacher training based on UNESCO’s ICT Competency Framework, has played a key role to ensure continuity of teaching and learning during the pandemic, as education institutions worldwide have been forced to close while adapting to new educational realities.
