OpenInn2.0: A Knowledge Generating House and e-Assessment Model
Start date: Nov 1, 2010,
The project OpenInn serves as a new Pedagogical and Organizational Model for communities and individuals to explore their innovative potentials by the use of ICT-tools with the benefit of strengthening their self-esteem. The results will contain the Knowledge Generating House which is an Internet site enhancing innovation on a social networking basis designed according to the Open Innovation concept. The e-Assessment Model is e-learning material based on a comprehensive pedagogical background that can be applied as a guide for using the Knowledge Generating House for lifelong learning and for innovation purposes. These results will be published on the OpenInn portal in 9 languages (ENG,DE,SK,PT,IT,HU,ES,DA,BG).OpenInn aims to answer the need for a bridge over the digital divide highlighted by EC documentations. Creative solutions require a different evaluation system and a new pedagogical concept with innovative didactics. Learners and facilitators need to have a strong self-esteem and trust that they will be accepted with their new ideas. They must not be afraid of introducing new solutions. This way they will be able to use new ICT-enhanced solutions effectively for collaborative learning. Innovative social networks can enhance learning in formal and informal education, thus exploiting new methods like open innovation will be important not only for enhancing creativity and self-realization but for creating new R&D knowledge in the future.Foreseen impacts on our target groups are:-Reinforcing innovation capacities and expanding learning opportunities of young talents by letting them exploit their intellectual capital and learn through creative expression, generate new ideas and creative solutions in real-life innovation with experts.-Motivating groups at-risk-of-drop-out to turn back to learning by strengthening their self-esteem and encouraging creative expression and self-realization in their interests through collaborative learning in the Innovation e-Learning Rooms of the Knowledge Generating House.
