R4C and OSOS
The Reflecting4Change project is a continuation of the Open Schools for Open Societies (OSOS) project. We are actively building on the intellectual outputs and network of OSOS to ensure the sustainability and widen the outreach of the well tested methods and tools.
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 was the role of the OSOS 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.
The Open Schools for Open Societies project created a core network of a thousand schools that together formed hundred hubs in twelve countries. All these schools were involved in the project in two implementation phases (school year 2018-2019 and school year 2019-2020). find out more on the website of OSOS!
