Shaping the CrowdIdentity, openness and new ways of learning. Pippa Buchanan (@pipstar)
education is the process by which society deliberately transmits its accumulated knowledge, skills and values from one generation to another http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Education
Learning is acquiring new or modifying existing knowledge, behaviors, skills, values, or preferences and may involve synthesizing different types of information. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Learning
The Open Education Movement: ...creating, using, adapting and improving open educational resources; embracing educationalpractices built around collaboration, discovery and the creation of knowledge... The Cape Town Open Education Declaration, September 2007
Open LearningLearning opportunities that are: ● Participatory and collaborative ● Learner driven ● Free / accessible ● Transferable and recognisable ● Adaptable to learners requirements ● Low barriers to entry
What should I learn? How should I organise this study? How can I track what I learn? Who and what do I learn from? How do I share my knowledge? How do I afford this?How can I get this learning recognised?
Education is life: not merely preparation for anunknown kind of future living... The whole of life is learning, therefore education can have no endings. Eduard Lindman, The Meaning of Adult Education, 1926
