A Multilingual Federation of Learning Repositories with Quality Content for the Awareness and Education of European Youth about Organic Agriculture and Agroecology
A Multilingual Federation of Learning Repositories with Quality Content for the Awareness and Education of European Youth about Organic Agriculture and Agroecology. Organic.Edunet aims to facilitate access, usage and exploitation of digital educational content related to Organic Agriculture (OA) and Agroecology.
It has deployed a multilingual online federation of learning repositories that are populated with quality content from various content producers. In addition, it has deployed a multilingual online environment (the Organic.Edunet Web Federation Portal) that facilitates end-users' search, retrieval, access and use of the content in the learning repositories. (http://portal.organic-edunet.eu) The project also studied educational scenarios that introduce the use of the Organic.Edunet portal and content to support teaching of topics related to OA and Agroecology in two cases of formal educational systems, i.e., high-schools and agricultural universities. The project results are being evaluated in the context of pilot demonstrators in pilot educational institutions, as well as through open validation events where external interested stakeholders will be invited.
Organic.Edunet focuses on achieving interoperability between the digital collections of OA and Agroecology content that producers in various EU countries have developed, as well as facilitating publication, access, and use of this content in multilingual learning contexts through a single European reference point. In this way, digital content that can be used to educate European Youth about the benefits of OA and Agroecology, will become easily accessible, usable and exploitable.
