Welcome to the most inspiring part of our website. Please take a look at these great examples of open schools.
Schools can count on support around curriculum, pedagogy and assessment. There will be given guidelines and advices on different issues such as staff development, redesigning time, and partnerships with for instance; local industries, businesses, research centres, parents and policy makers. Finally, schools can count on a range of possible implementation models and a database full of existing ‘open school’ projects. In this project, these projects are called ‘accelerators’ and they will contribute to the transformation to an open school of participating schools.
If you have an activity or project that you think might fit into OSOS, please share it with us. Find more
information about sharing inspiring projects at the bottom of this page.

Sharing inspiring projects
OSOS activities are an essential part of the project, as they provide schools with innovative practices with the Open Schooling culture. If you have an activity or project that you think might fit into OSOS, you can send it to us so that we can evaluate it to be an OSOS Accelerator.
This is an international project that is being carried out simultaneously in a total of 12 countries at both European and non-European level. Because of this reason, we are gathering practices from anywhere in the world. This is the procedure:
Fill in this online form https://goo.gl/forms/UjoKNR2xrhcNkCuP2 with your activity data and specifications. We ask you for some information to contact you later, as well as basic information and specs about your proposal. We will evaluate the submitted proposals and make a selection of the most interesting activities for being OSOS Accelerators. We will send a template to its creators so that they can write down more detailed information about the activity. We will need this document to share it with the teachers, so we need to know some detailed information (like what do you have in mind, how you want to develop the activity, what do you need, etc.)
This process is opened for the whole OSOS Project (2017-2020), so you can submit your proposal whenever you want. University of Deusto is in charge of this task, so don’t hesitate to contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org or at http://osos.deusto.es/contacto/ if you need any support.
