About Zimbabwe EduConnect
The Zimbabwe EduConnect platform is a public directory of open educational resources (OER) for primary and secondary school teachers. The repository was developed with support from the UNESCO-KFIT project on “ICT Transforming Education”. The directory provides links to relevant digital resources, that meet the requirements of the new Zimbabwean Curriculum, across all levels of school education in Zimbabwe and for all subject domains and. It will be available initially in English.
Available OERs include video, audio, documents, interactive objects and images. Teachers can contribute to the directory by submitting and sharing relevant OERs.
The aim of the EduConnect platform is to store, preserve and provide access to variety of digital resources to teachers and to enable the participation of the Zimbabwean educational community in development and sharing of digital resources. EduConnect ultimately aims to enhance the quality of teaching, learning and research and to facilitate teachers to create and share contextualized teaching learning resources and to celebrate innovations in resource creation.
This shift in resource creation and sharing is not just about cost savings and easy access to openly licensed content; it’s about participation and co-creation. Open Educational Resources (OER) offer opportunities for systemic change in teaching and learning content through engaging educators in new participatory processes and effective technologies for engaging with learning.
