Linking Learning Resources to Curricula by using Competencies
While a lot of digital and non-digital educational resources exist, teachers still struggle to find the ones that are appropriate for the curriculum they are teaching. The problem is very much compounded when dealing with a multicultural, multilingual environment, such as Europe where dozens of curricula exist in isolation. The paper presented at the Second European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning by Frans Van Assche, Senior Manager at EUN, proposes a solution whereby first competencies are proposed as a common denominator for curricula, and then the competencies are presented in the IEEE LOM standard. This approach allows teachers to tag a resource according to their own curriculum A, so that other teachers can find it back using their local curriculum B. The paper presents a full implementation of this approach and first findings of the results.
