Papel para envolver chorizos ... 
que como decía en un Comentario a las apreciaciones de Jose L Castillo ... "A mí lo que más me ha llamao la atención, son las risas sarcásticas del resto de la mesa... saben de lo que habla el que habla"
 ...así que como diría el poeta si no quieres que cambie nada haz un plan ... como el de España y la corrupción ...  Hoy traemos a este espacio la siguiente noticia sobre un programa que se presenta de  la Comisión Europea  ... el
Wednesday 25 September: The Commission presents Opening up Education, an initiative to promote innovative teaching and learning through new technologies and open educational resources

The news:
The European Commission will publish a Communication on Opening up Education which aims to stimulate high-quality, innovative ways of learning and teaching through digital technologies and content. By making learning environments more open and delivering quality education more efficiently, the EU will create a better skilled workforce which will boost jobs, competitiveness and growth.
Opening up Education proposes measures at EU and national levels, including helping learning institutions, teachers and students of all ages to acquire digital skills and new learning methods. The initiative also seeks to support the development and availability of open educational resources.
The background:
Digital technologies are radically changing the landscape of education and training. Open educational resources (OER), such as 'Massive Open Online Courses' (MOOCs), are challenging traditional models and practices. These global changes are having an increasing impact on education and training institutions, teachers, learners and publishers, among others. But as well as challenges, the ICT revolution brings new opportunities – for new audiences, new providers and new business models. Despite the efforts that Member States and the EU have made so far in the area of digitisation, European education and training systems are losing the lead in this process of change.
The event:
Neelie Kroes, Vice-President responsible for the Digital Agenda, and Androulla Vassiliou, Commissioner for Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth, will jointly present Opening up Education at the midday briefing in the Commission's press room. A press release and a staff working document will be available on the day.
