  • the long tradition of Progressive education (e.g. John Dewey and Jean Piaget);away from mainstream traditional education. Other alternative education approaches employing non-traditional curricula and/or methods are, for example, Montessori and Waldorf schools which were already established in the 19th century. In Great Britain in the 1960's, an educational movement building upon started emerging. It then grew to the United States and became known as Open Education. Open classrooms, a single multi-age and multi-grade classroom where students were typically divided into different groups for each subject according to their skill level, are the best known implementation of Open Education.
  • Reflecting on the history of the Open Education movement, two key lines of argument and four dimensions can be discerned. In the beginning, in the 60's and early 70's, it centered around learner's exploration and self-directedness in open classrooms with learners setting their own learning trajectories (i.e. the "what" and the "when"). It then focused on providing access to Higher Education through Open Universities. This movement started shaking the foundation of "where" learning takes place bringing down the access barriers and selectiveness in education, but also emphasising that learning outside of physical boundaries of an institutionalised framework can also be considered as formal learning. The distance education means used by Open Universities combined with the rise of ICT put the finger on the means; more and more online content started appearing using synchronous and asynchronous communication. This brought a new focus on how learning takes place, e.g. learning strategies, instruments, their instructions design & pedagogical choices. The later focus on the content, collaboration and sharing also contribute on the "how". Dimension- Learning goals-Assessment of learning Resources:Content and other peopleLearningitself:- Guidance, responsibility of learning: teacher-led /self directed- Method of learning:ind/collab- Pedagogy: lecture centered / experiental learning - Mode: physical setting / online- Context: theoretical /embedded in practice Validation of learning: - Evaluation- Recognition of learning
  • With the help of above elaborated axes, four different scenarios emerge (micro-level from the learner perspective):Self-guided discovery: Learner's personal learning goals ("what") drive the learning process. The learner takes the initiative, with our without the assistance of others, to identify resources for learning, chooses and implements appropriate learning strategies and learns in a self-regulated way taking responsibility for self-monitoring, completion of set goals and their evaluation ("how", "where", "when"). The green scenario is the most “open” one. Guided discovery: Learner's personal learning goals drive the learning process, but the learner receives guidance, structure and support, for instance, from institutions to orient himself/herself with resources and appropriate learning strategies. Only "where" learning takes place is “closed” and set by an institutional context. Self-guided journey: The learning goals are externally set meaning that the "what" is preterminated. This could be in a form of a curriculum or formal qualifications requirements for a job. The learner however, drives the learning process to meet these requirements. Guided journey: A combination of the latter two scenarios, in which the learner's learning goals are externally set and guidance is provided. "How" and "when" remain open.

    19. 19. IV. Final remarks Open Education 2030 OE 2030 scenarios are not mutually exclusive • Fluidity allows for moving between the scenarios • Preference for a scenario depends on needs and interest of both individuals and the society • OE 2030 still requires guidance and certain restrictions: openness has different manifestations depending on the sector [Draft – Work in progress – more final version early 2014] [Paper: "OE 20130: Planning the future of Adult Learning in Europe", Open Learning: The Journal of Open, Distance and e-Learning]
