  26. 26. Our mission focuses on ways to improve the opportunities for and quality of education for everyone: Teach people about OER. Solve problems. Build and diversify community. Explore better pedagogical models. Empower teachers and learners.
  27. 27. We embrace some overarching principles for engaged pedagogies - these are not new, but become almost inevitable (in a positive way) when embracing the benefits of open licenses, open technologies, open collaboratories.
  28. 28. Crucial considerations Constant, formative feedback. Educate for skills and capacities, not rote knowledge. Leverage the available human and material capital effectively. Consider all of the fundamental building blocks of a participatory learning system simultaneously. Enjoy your learning!

  30. 30. 6 1/2 weeks b l intro context 1. u open content case-studies 2. e open tech basics 3. p open content licensing 4. r open tech on the horizon 5. i open pedagogy round-table 6. n t More sessions for project i discussion and feedback if n g needed
  31. 31. how it works glass-house everyone can look in weekly seminars with interesting people (recordings) google group discussion social bookmarking different week, same ... prep for next seminar blueprint pipeline check wiki (and email) for details
  32. 32. blueprinting ?idea -> blueprint -> protoype -> project!
  33. 33. blueprinting individual ideas group projects geeks and educators common interests took a stab at grouping feed into ongoing things: Mozilla Education portal Firefox plug-ins Peer2Peer University
  34. 34. next steps decide on groups! start sketching ideas more important than details a picture ... enough detail so you can start building
  35. 35. what does it look like? template on the wiki create a wiki page or host it elsewhere blueprint fundamentals open content open tech open pedagogy some more important than others
  36. 36. idea example I'd like to examine how these tools could help educators to assess largely digitized assignments (like blogs). I currently use a wiki to collect and evaluate my student's blogs. Ideally, I'd like some mechanism to bookmark and easily assess digital works in a way that would provide fields for assessment criteria as well as highlighting items on the page for the student. I'm especially interested in Open Source tools as an alternative to clunky, top down, proprietary edu ware that currently dominates our institutions.
  37. 37. idea example My initial project idea is to design (and possibly develop) a lightweight aggregator for following student blogs. I have been organizing several open online courses and found out that I need something more than plain RSS reader to follow the course. Maybe it can be developed with Yahoo Pipes.
