RESET, a Spanish National project aimed to reformulate scalable educational ecosystems offering technological innovations, is a collaboration among three universities; Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Universidad de Valladolid and Universitat Pompeu Fabra spanning from 2015 to 2017. Scalable educational ecosystems under RESET are understood as (1) the set of different stakeholders involved, (2) the didactics and technologies used, and (3) the spaces in which teaching and learning occurs for a given context and scale. To do so, RESET proposes: (1) a set of pilot experiments that address these limitations, (2) a set of didactic guidelines and technological components to address these challenges, and (3) a framework to analyze how the scale (local/global), the space (physical/Web/3DVW), the degree of interaction (active/passive pedagogies, individual/social learning) and the context (formal/informal) affect the different elements in the educational ecosystems. The pilot experiments will be carried out in the fields of engineering and health and in the context of secondary education, higher education, lifelong learning and learning at the workplace. The main challenges are: (1) to tackle the limits of MOOCs and SPOCs imposed by the scale and the Web space (e.g., the use of active pedagogies and the co-design and co-evaluation based on competences), (2) to take advantage of their benefits in face-to-face contexts at a lower scale (e.g., audiovisual production, immediate feedback, social learning, learning analytics), and (3) to orchestrate “flipping the classroom” approaches in blended-learning contexts. The project also has an advisory board of national and international experts on education and educational technology, as well as on the application of these to different scales.
