    30. 30. Open data and ‘citizens’• Citizens as beneficiaries: receive improved service through improved actions.• Citizens as partners: co-creating development outcomes usually through intermediaries.• Citizens as empowered actors: able to shape own access to developmental outcomes.Source: Fostering a Critical Development Perspective on OpenGovernment Data: Workshop Report, April 2012http://public.webfoundation.org/2012/04/ODRS/ODR-Brasilia-Meeting-Report.pdf Impacts?
    31. 31. OER ‘value proposition’May “contribute to creating a revolution in education”May offer cost savings and economic efficienciesContributes to make “information and knowledge more relevant,accessible, and useable” for allFacilitates active roles for learners in educational processes; itgenerates “more effective learning environments”The transparency of OER “places social pressure on institutions andteaching staff to increase quality” Source: Exploring the Business Case for Open Educational Resources.
