Our schools should be incubators of exploration and invention. They should be accelerators of innovation. They should promote Open Schooling. School leaders should set a vision for creating learning experiences that provide the right tools and supports for all learners to thrive. Teachers should be collaborators in learning, seeking new knowledge and constantly acquiring new skills alongside their students. A holistic approach to innovation is needed. We need to facilitate the process with a provision of the necessary catalyst:

“This is the foreseen role of the proposed project, to describe and implement at scale a process that will facilitate the transformation of schools to innovative ecosystems, acting as shared sites of science learning for which leaders, teachers, students and the local community share responsibility, over which they share authority, and from which they all benefit through the increase of their communities’ science capital and the development of responsible citizenship.”

OSOS project will create a core network of 100 Open Schooling Hubs in 12 countries. Each one of these schools will develop a network of at least 9 additional schools to form a national network of schools where the Open School Culture is introduced. Overall more than 1,000 schools will be involved in the project in two implementation phases (school year 2018-2019, and school year 2019-2020.
