  3. 3. “Openness is really the only means of doing education.” “If there’s no sharing, if I’m not sharing what I know, if I’m not giving you feedback, if I’m not engaging in this give and take with you there is no education. Education is inherently an enterprise of openness and sharing and generosity.” David Wiley, Associate Professor of Instructional Psychology and Technology, Brigham Young University
  4. 4. The Open Movement “… the open movement covers open source developments in technology, software and standards, open content and knowledge, and it includes open educational practice.
  5. 5. The principles underlying all these areas of activity are based on the idea that opening up our work to others’ incremental improvements and insights can generate much better materials technologies and ideas with wider use and application, than in closed environments, where input and use are restricted.” http://www.heacademy.ac.uk/resources/detail/new-to-teaching/oer/introduction (Accessed 17 December 2013)

  17. 17. “At the heart of the movement towards open educational resources is the simple and powerful idea that the world’s knowledge is a public good and that technology in general, and the WorldWide Web in particular provide an extraordinary opportunity for everyone to share, use and re-use it.” Marshall S.
