Teachers from all over the world had the opportunity to live a high-impact and transformative experience in personal and organizational level in the OSOS Summer School, held in Marathonas (Attica, Greece) from 1st to 6th of July 2018. Participants were provided significant insights and tools to implement the necessary changes and with the intervention skills to best plan and then diffuse innovation in their own school, helping it evolve to an Open Schooling Environment, establishing Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) principles.
The OSOS Summer School provided them with a powerful framework to engage, discuss and explore:
- how their school needs to evolve, transform or reinvent itself, according to the innovation level it is already reached
- how a school will facilitate open, more effective and efficient co‐design, co‐creation, and use of educational content (both from formal and informal providers), tools and services for personalized learning and teaching
- how their school can become an innovation incubator and accelerator
Through the OSOS Summer School Course, participants were given the knowledge and skills to assess existing learning methods and material in their school, abandon those which fail or are too costly, learn lessons, and disseminate and reproduce the successful ones on a larger scale.
