SchoolNet South Africa: ICT in the Classroom Conference – for all those who missed our talk

Frederic Kastner, Programme Manager for The Virtual School and Malik Adam Wilson, Creative Manager for The Virtual School were invited to the SchoolNet Conference in South Africa to talk to over 600 teachers on the Open Educational Resource Movement, how it’s changing the world of education and how teachers from everywhere can get involved.

The talk also includes the OER Organisations around the world creating free educational resources for everyone – Khan Academy, Coursera, The Virtual School, Udacity, Siyavula, TED-Ed and Bread Bin.

As always, it would be great if you could leave us your feedback or if you simply got in touch if you can think of a way of collaborating with us around Open Educational Resources, no matter where you are around the world! We need the help of animators, designers, teachers, NGOs and charities, governments and higher education institutions, as well as social enterprises, to get spread engaging, localised Open Educational Resources around the world.

Meet the Team

In the summer of 2012 The Virtual School began recruiting a team of designers, producers, illustrators and photographers to begin whipping up teachers’ best explanations into vibrant video animations.

These creative individuals have been working on The Virtual School in partnership with Project Murillo, an internship scheme funded by the EU’s life long learning program, Leonardo Da Vinci.

Working with Project Murillo has meant that our interns spend half of their time working on world class educational videos and the other half developing their skills through creative communication work placements in sunny Seville.
