Teachers will have an international library

Tuesday, October 13, 2009

ASPECT project involves experts from 9 Ministries of Education in Europe.

Bucharest, 13 October 2009 - Could you imagine a library of educational resources selected from around the world in which teachers can access anytime? It is not a picture from a movie, but a project that will happen soon.

ASPECT project (Adopting Standards and Specifications for Educational Content), in which SIVECO Romania is partner aims to enrich the existing library with a valuable educational content that teachers have easy access and who can choose any material desire, for use in classrooms.

ASPECT will take steps to address the potentially damaging 'disconnect' between standards bodies and experts on the one hand and educational policy makers, ICT advisers and practitioners on the other.

"From the perspective of Ministries of Education taking part in project, a key result will be that teachers' views as well as those of technical experts will have been considered during the pre-standardization process. The project has a strong research and innovation component in standardization of digital educational resources," said Delia Oprea, SIVECO Romania Project Coordinator.
