If the  Book  Didn’t Change Schools Can the computer? Can the internet? Can the LMS?
Openness, Then Data A brief thought experiment…
 
Openness… In Education? Let’s begin by defining terms
Open,  adj . Describes educational artifacts
Open Textbooks Open Educational Resources Open Courseware (Open Source Software)
Open,  adj . Teaching materials freely shared with permissions to engage in the “4R” activities
The 4Rs Reuse – copy verbatim Redistribute – share with others Revise – adapt and improve Remix – combine with others
Communicate 4Rs Permissions <ul><li>Since this overrides default copyright, you must use a copyright license </li></ul>
Offers easy to use 4R’s licenses
 
 
 
 
While Nouns Differ… The operationalizing actions are the same
Open,  adj . Generous, sharing, giving
Open,  adj . Providing (1) access and (2) local control
Your Inner Two-year Old Overcoming the impulse to scream “ Mine!”
Law and Policy “Enable” Us To shout “Mine!” ever more loudly, convulse ever more uncontrollably, and hit each other with e...
Society’s Siren Song “ Be selfish. Keep it to yourself.  Sue your neighbor.  It’s legal. It’s ok.”
Education Is Not Immune This kind of thinking is accepted
Role of Openness in Education? A terrible, insidious question
Openness is the only means  of doing education.
If There Is No Sharing… There is no education
Education,  n . A relationship of sharing
Successful Educators Share most thoroughly  with the most students
Expertise Is Nonrivalrous Can be given without being given away
“ He who receives ideas from me, receives instruction himself without lessening mine; as he who lights his taper at mine r...
Teachers Would Be Like Bees! They could only teach once
Expressions Are Different To give a book you must give it away
Expressions Are Different To give a book you must give it away
Expressions Are  Different Digital expressions are nonrivalrous n’t ^
E.g., Online Book We can all read simultaneously
An Indescribable Advance The first time in human history
Expertise and Its Expressions Give without giving away
Unprecedented Capacity We can share as never before
Unprecedented Capacity We can  educate  as never before
What Are We Doing? This increased capacity is a  stewardship
