Sharing digital resources in the Teaching Education Community is an EU - project and part of the Community programme eContentplus. Its aim is to create a digital environment that fosters access, retrieval and reuse of resources for Teacher Education across Europe.
The Share.TEC consortium consists of leading European institutions involved in teacher education and the project brings this competence together in a common attempt to establish a functional portal of TE content. Important project objectives is to develop semantic, linguistic/cultural and technical interoperability and to foster reusability among other things.
In Share.TEC, leading European institutions involved in teacher education and in the development /distribution of digital resources for TE come together in a common endeavor to establish a highly visible and functional portal with advanced brokerage services that provide personalized access to a wide-ranging federation of TE content. Founded on the critical mass of partners’ quality-proven TE resources, Share.TEC will interlink with external databases and with distributed TE resources generated by the user community, thus allowing constant enrichment and diversification of the service.
Share.TEC will encompass a wide range of resource types: as well as material suitable for formal, structured TE, the system will cover contents suitable for individual and self-guided CPD, for supporting collaborative learning, as well as schemata or plans that model reusable learning paths. End-users will be able to gain a clear picture of the pedagogical characteristics distinguishing the resources they retrieve, a factor that will strongly promote reuse in authentic contexts.
Share.TEC is based on a collaboratively-developed TE ontology that is the foundation for a multicultural model designed to capture semantics from a variety of educational systems and cultural settings. As there is no existing endeavor in the TE field with these characteristics, Share.TEC has the potential to become a practical reference point fostering community-based participation.
The specific objectives are:
- Semantic, linguistic and technical interoperability
- Fostering reusability
- Provision of an effective means for describing heterogeneous TE resources while maintaining compliance with international standards and spec
- Provision of an effective brokerage system for TE
