OER18 Talk - A piece of illumination enlarged

  2. 2. Openly licensed resources are particularly suited to facilitating access, awareness raising and activism Engaging with Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons is an highly effective way to make openly licensed resources discoverable Developing open literacies teaches broader digital citizenship skills
  3. 3. “…the editathon contributed to the initiation of an informal learning process. Participants’ engagement with the wiki site did not stop when the edit-athon ended. Instead, participants continued to edit and add information for several months after the event. Hence, we can conclude that (a) the editathon event contributed to the formation of a NoP around a specific theme of the event and (b) the online wiki environment provided a framework that stimulated a more prolonged engagement with the topic and with other network participants. Furthermore, and again drawing on anecdotal evidence from the event, participants specifically considered the editathon as part of their individual professional development plan.” Martin Rehm, Allison Littlejohn & Bart Rienties (2017) Does a formal wiki event contribute to the formation of a network of practice?

  4. 4. “All participants interviewed became more aware of the ways in which the Internet and digital media shape the information with which society engages and how this information is interpreted and used to create particular [historical] narratives.” “Some perceived their role as taking on responsibility for ensuring accurate representation of offline, physical resources in an online form. This responsibility motivated many of the editors to develop more critical understandings of content and information in the digital age. Engagement within the edit-athon left some participants with a sense that they can shape societal agendas through simple editing actions and, for some, editing has become a form of continued activism.” (Allison, L. A & Hood, N (2018). Becoming an online editor: perceived roles and responsibilities of Wikipedia editors. Information Research, 23(1), paper 784.
