Editorial: The Open Education Movement: How Can We Realize its Full Potential?
Great claims have been made about the potential of the Open Education movement to extend accessible and relevant educational opportunities to all. But how far does the reality of Open Educational Practice match these claims? Who is served by the current models of openness? And – more importantly – who is not gaining from new developments and how can any issues be addressed? // All the contributions to this issue of JL4D provide new insights into these critical questions and highlight areas to be addressed to ensure that we can meet Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG) “Ensure inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning” (see https://www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/Goal-4.pdf)
