OER World Map

Support Of Open Licensing In Early Childhood Literacy Efforts In The Developing World


Neil Butcher and Associates, a consulting firm with OER expertise, will conduct research to determine whether and how open licenses could help increase the amount of reading material available to children across the developing world. The results are expected to inform policy solutions to high rates of illiteracy among young children and, more specifically, help shape the Global Book Alliance, a consortium being established by international donors. This work is intended to advance the Education Program’s strategy of encouraging policies in the developing world that promote the use of OER to solve key problems in education.
