10. Thank You! 1010 EdTech Design aspects - Thoughtfully designed Techno-centric approaches Thoughtful Design of EdTech CLIx EdTech solutions have been designed and primed to harness digital technologies for educational purposes. These applications foster open, connected and collaborative learning.
11. Thank You! 1111 True to its vision CLIx uses free and open source technologies that comply with open standards. As of June 2019 we are in the process of converting all our modules, tools and assets into Open Educational Resources (OERs). 1. Keep learning technology free and open source Equity & Justice 2. Learning solutions for diverse learners and learning contexts Universal design 3. Avoid “reinvention of wheel” integrate Lego model1 / digital confederatio 4. Avoid “walled gardens” compliance to open standards interoperability ● OSID, SCORM, LTI, QTI, API, ActivityPub, schema.org EdTech Design aspects - Free & Open
12. Thank You! 1212 EdTech- connecting the disconnected ● Last mile internet connectivity is still scarce1 in government schools especially in rural areas. ● CLIx EdTech solutions are packaged as a DOER disk (Distributable decentralized Offline OER). ● DOER acts as an “internet-in-a-box” and offers connected learning experience even without internet ○ Works with and without Internet ○ Opportunistically sync data ○ Localised/distributed deployments ● Tens of thousands of first generation learners located in remote areas of Chhattisgarh, Mizoram, Rajasthan and Telangana states were able to develop digital skills and access high quality digital resources.

22. Thank You! 2222 CLIx - an Open Innovation and Open Practice initiative Open practices ● Teacher professional development ● Teachers’ communities of practice ● Student technology groups ● Autonomy to agency of teachers and students ● Design Based Research Open innovative tools and technologies ● CLIxPlatform and interactive tools ● Hands-on activities ● DOER for distributable OER ● TISSx, MiTi bot and Telegram Build systems capacity to adopt open educational practices ● All the governments in invention states now recognize the need for shifting focus on pedagogy than technology. ● The public education system has started developing strategies for teacher professional development for the use of ICTs in Education. ● Government of Chhattisgarh launches CG-OER which is facilitated by CLIx https://nroer.gov.in/cg ● CLIx demonstrates a workable model for quality at scale by harnessing open technologies and open practices that public education system in India can adapt and replicate.
23. Thank You! 2323 Why CLIx for OEAwards2019? CLIx has been a bold and forward looking initiative to demonstrate quality at scale in the resource constrained contexts through leveraging new media and digital technologies. During past four years it has windend its reach and has compelled the public education system in the four intervening states to recognize the need for thoughtful integration of ICTs in Education and has supported the efforts to build an ecosystem to support teachers and develop open, meaningful, sustainable tools, technologies, practices and models. These open tools and practices, although were primarily devised for Indian context, they have global relevance especially the resource constrained contexts of global south. Recognition of Open Education Award would strengthen our efforts and empower us to take our open tools and practices to even wider populace at an international level.
