    If you want to know more about the toolkit, or open digital content I can customise any aspect of it for your school or organisation, I can offer meetings, workshops, school visits and seminars to develop any of the strands and ideas in a personalised context. I am also available to speak at conferences on any of the themes projects and examples covered in this toolkit, and illustrate the progression and impact of the toolkit as it develops.
    I would be very happy to discuss any of the above informally, and welcome you to get in touch either by sending a message through the wiki, or contact me here, either by email or skype.
    Due to Wikispaces closing the service these pages will not be updated on this site. I am currently looking to move them to a new platform and improve and build on them.
    Information technology can help to equalise the distribution of high quality educational opportunities throughout the world. In particular, having learning materials freely available for adaptation and re-purposing can expand access to learning of better quality at lower cost. A campaign to make freely adaptable content known as Open Educational Resources (OER) widely available has gathered momentum. A global community of OER producers has emerged and institutions are incorporating these resources into their teaching and learning strategies” Unesco 2012
