The Open Science Resources Portal Towards the development of a Shared Digital Repository for Formal and Informal Science Education
OSR Content The OSR consortium aims to organise and enrich with metadata a rich collection of existing educational resources. The collection includes 300,000 web based materials, guidelines for the realization of both physical and virtual educational field trips (connected to the school curriculum or more open), lesson plans and relevant educational materials, professional development and training materials, educational projects and activities for schools, families and individuals, digital images of exhibits, videos and animations of physical phenomena and instructional descriptions and thousands of electronic publications on topics raging from everyday science topics to issues concerning scientific research.
1. Search for Content and Activities
2. Enrich OSR Content and Pathways
3. Create your pathways Example: The Atom
StoryLine connected with the Otto Hahns discovery of nuclear fission
4. Unique learning experiences The OSR approach enriches science centre exhibits with digital objects to help students gain a deeper understanding scientific phenomena and connected issues
