The Open Knowledge Curriculum is a fun, exciting and participatory way to introduce 21st Century skills, ethical digital practices, enhance media literacy (such as avoiding fake news), and online content creation to high school children. The multi-year adaptive and participatory course helps students to understand and better navigate the global digital environment from a developing country perspective, and to safely and knowingly share their creative voices and experiences online. 

The curriculum will be offered in multiple languages and formats to suit the needs and resources of educators and institutions (as an integrated, extra curricular subject, or adult education subject, using an online, offline or hybrid environment, etc.). Educators will be supported through an accredited training programme, and a national peer network. 

The resulting curriculum and materials will, of course, be released under an open licence, and therefore free to use and adopt by anyone willing to implement the programme. However, it is also important that the final syllabus is endorsed and offered by the main national and international examining bodies. Likewise, the project aims to have the curriculum endorsed as a UNESCO Framework. 

Status: Funding is being sought for further development.
