If you share our mission, after reading the Guiding Principles, please join us and take the first step by filling out the commitment form. We will be in touch about group announcements, next steps, and virtual gatherings. The IoE is all of ours, join the alliance.
For the next 3 months, everyone is invited to join an open online debate about the IoE principles. In November, we will publish the Internet of Education (IoE) Version 1.0 Principles and open the signatory. The IoE is all of ours, help us govern and form consensus.
With a network of initiatives as complex as the internet, we need help telling the story. Help us crowdsource real life IoE stories and ideas for how the IoE will make real people's lives better. We will publish the best in a use case compilation for cities, states, and nations.
The Internet of Education (IoE) is not an organization, but a future vision where every human on earth has access to quality education and economic opportunities. It is an idea with room for many voices, researchers, agencies, organizations, and companies. It will require innovation, experimentation, and getting things wrong while always iterating toward what’s right.
The Internet of Education encourages debate and critical discourse from a variety of perspectives because global education is just as diverse as its people. The Internet of Education is not fully owned or controlled by any one person, central guardian, group, or faction of groups. Anyone can be an IoE steward by committing to and following the guiding principles.

These principles are not final, but rather the culmination of critical and ongoing conversations across a global community of practice. Use the comment icons below to debate and discuss these principles.
There is only one open IoE. We will work together to protect and connect all network nodes and ensure the IoE equitably benefits humanity.
Like the vision for the Internet, we will ensure that no one organization asserts more control than is needed to enable shared advancement and interoperability between all IoE network nodes.
We will empower all stewards of the IoE to make prompt, precise, and mutually beneficial decisions in order to advance the shared mission, principles, and protocols of the IoE.
We will develop, promote, publish and/or adopt, without restriction, technical and academic standards that align to the practices and principles outlined by OpenStand.
We will ensure that any individual, group, or organization can access and participate at no cost. The only requirement will be to pledge commitment to these guiding principles.
We will ensure that the relative influence in resolving any contested decisions be proportional to the number and diversity of learners representing the nodes of the active IoE network.
We will advocate for and support historically marginalized groups, address individual and cultural bias, and work to dissolve structural barriers through civil discourse and the creative and humane use of technology.
We will develop, adopt, and promote technologies and data practices that place people over profits so the IoE becomes a public good that puts humans and their data first.
We will ensure that all learner records are accessible and/or controlled by the individual (or their guardian) and that all identity systems are transparent and aim to preserve privacy and data agency.
We will recognize and support ALL educational experiences that result in positive human development and acknowledge that learning begins at birth and continues throughout the lifetime of everyone on earth.
