Abstract

The article examines the new competencies – required and embedded – in the new youth participatory culture. It introduces the OER – Open Educational Resources – as both an opportunity and a challenge to educational institutions that respond to the youth culture based on openness, on social connections, and on networking. In particular, OER will be individuated as a practice that responds to the “participatory culture” incorporating it. Open Access represents the core of the youth culture that is building up around and through the new forms of circulation of information and knowledge. Open Access approach in the educational system represents an education policy that embeds the dynamics of the new youth participatory culture.
