  • Finally an example of OER which hits fairly close to home for us: Alec Couros had completed his phd and decided to share his dissertation with the world by publishing it openly online Since publishing that document has been viewed nearly 28000 times Because he used an open license and shared his work people knew that they could build upon and adapt the ideas and diagrams he created. One of his diagrams “The Networked Teacher” became somewhat of an internet senstion.
  • It was adapted for the Portuguese context
  • It was translated to Greek
  • It was again adapted and translated to Spanish
  • And finally it was adapted locally at the University of Cape Town for the South African context. What this diagram represents is the idea of an open scholar. The term ‘open scholar’ has started being used to indicate a new type of academic for whom ‘openness’ is the default approach. This academic is largely online, probably keeps a blog, makes all their presentations available via something like slideshare, engages with new resources such as YouTube, shares bookmarks in delicious, belongs to social networks such as ning or twitter and publishes some of their content in open access journals. There are powerful sentiments coming out lately in terms of education reform - The more powerful technology becomes and the more abundant information becomes, the more indispensable good teachers are The open scholar shares their teaching and learning material and knowledge of quality content and uses ideas from other OER’s around the world. Rather than spending a great deal of time designing their teaching materials (or tools) they can focus on pedagogy, context, and teaching. The key to all this is easy sharing and networking facilitated by open licensing and new technologies. The academic can increase their reach and visibility in the process.

    9. 21. 10/06/11 William Paterson University As we enter the twenty first century, it is essential that the schools be places that help students better understand the complex, symbol-rich culture in which they live in. A new vision of literacy is essential if educators are serious about the broad goals of education: preparing students to function as informed and effective citizens in a democratic society; preparing students to realize personal fulfillment; and preparing students to function effectively in a rapidly changing world that demands new, multiple literacies . Renee Hobbs, 1997
