The Open Learning Exchange (OLE) seeks to transform learning in ways that will enable every child to achieve a quality basic education.
Why? Because every child has a fundamental right to quality basic education but over one billion schoolaged children today lack some of the most essential skills – the ability to read and do basic math. This unjust and unnecessary cruelty is a waste of human talent diminishing all of us, ensuring perpetual global conflict.
Quality universal basic education is one of the requirements for solving the many problems facing our world today. Three game-changing innovations are making it possible, as never before, to meet this requirement: a) ever-increasing, high-quality and free Open Education Resources, b) low-cost information and communications technologies and c) massive, near real-time, feedback on the effectiveness of learning. These breakthroughs now enable all of us, even the most poor and remote, to achieve a quality education.
