Almost immediately after the decision of schools closure has been announced, the Polish environment promoting open education was mobilized to step in. Actions taken include not only sharing available resources. Polish educational organizations work together to prevent exclusion, ensure equal access to education, support teachers, students and parents in order to create the most convenient learning and teaching conditions in these difficult times.

This news post from the Open Policy Education Network describes Poland’s approach including open licensed national resources, public tv and efforts of grassroots organizations and NGOs  (e.g. Lessons on the Web – Lekcje w sieci).  Learn about the actions by Polish open education leaders and a call for research as well as cooperation.
