This toolkit is designed to provide a community and starting point, and a shared space to develop ideas an practices that will exploit the potential of open digital content for teaching and learning.
Although this primarily aimed at all levels of school education, there may be
ideas and practices that are appropriate for, or can be developed by
those working in the other education sectors of FE, HE including Teacher Education, The wiki is fully open to anyone, you can of course just use the wiki to learn and check out resources up, discover new resources and be inspired by the examples shown, but we invite and welcome all to
this community by

Why not join the community, set up your own personalised pages, share examples of your work, ideas, create mini blogs and shareable resources? It is the community of members and their ideas and contributions that will add the real pedagogical value to the toolkit and ensure its sustainability.
Whenever possible add comments and thoughts on the content of any page to the discussion tabs including the one for this page which invites critical feedback and
ideas for improving
the toolkit. One of the potential gains of this wiki will be to host and disseminate discussions as widely as possible. I have seeded one discussion on this page to get us started,
he initial wiki information pages such as introduction and getting started are
to keep the information
for all users, if you think something should be changed or amended suggest this in the relevant discussion tab for each page. Of course you can create your own page by following the
simple steps outlined here
Some pages will include embedded forms for you to contribute ideas for using exemplars.
