The Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ISESCO) has launched the second edition of the “ISESCO Prize for Open Digital Educational Resources” with the aim of promoting the role of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in rising the quality of education and in enriching learning activities.

ISESCO attaches great importance to the integration and use of these technologies to improve educational action and to engage the interest, interaction, and knowledge construction of young learners, the organization said in a press release.

In this context, ISESCO launches the “ISESCO Prize for Open Digital Educational Resources” to promote innovative educational technology projects and practices integrating ICT in the fields of education, training, scientific research and administrative management by distributing the best achievements and effective ICT-supported projects, reflecting the noble human values and the cultural specificities of the Islamic world.

ISESCO’s Open Digital Educational Resource Prize will be awarded this year to the three best initiatives by individual educational actors in member states with outstanding initiatives.
One winning initiative is selected from each of the three groups according to the three working languages of the Organization (Arabic, English, French). The nomination process is subject to pedagogical, technical and ethical standards, according to the regulatory requirements and procedures detailed in the technical paper.
Nominations should be sent to ISESCO by the end of July 2019.
