My #CCK11 Talk - Sharing to Connect, Interact and Learn!


Published on

This presentation explores openness in education, and my own journey embracing openness in what I discover and learn.

It was presented (Elluminate session) during week 9 (Openness & Transparency) of the 'Connectivism & Connective Knowledge 2011 (CCK11)' course facilitated by Stephen Downes and George Siemens.

  • Endowment Model • Single large grant • Managed by fund-holder Funding via interest Eg. Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy $US 3 to 4 million fund $190,000 budget Membership Model• Organizations join consortium • Members pay fees • Projects managed collectively Eg. Sakai Eg. MERLOT Eg. OCW Consortium Donations Model • Donations solicited from public • May involve project membership (by individuals) • Project manged by a board Eg. Wikipedia foundation Apache foundation Conversion Model "In the Conversion model, you give something away for free and then convert the consumer of the freebie to a paying customer." Sterne and Herring (2005) • Contributor Pay • Creators of resources pay for ‘publication’ • Resources are managed by the publisher charges for this process will be met by funding bodies, such as the WellcomeTrust - 1% of their annual spend. Eg. Public Library of Science But also Think about YouTube, Blogger, Flickr (pro) • Sponsorship Model • The ‘public television’ model • Resources are ‘sponsored’ by donors • Usually in return for sponsorship spot Advertising….? Examples MIT iCampus Outreach Initiative (Microsoft) (CORE, 2005) Stanford on iTunes project (Apple) Institutional Model Examples: OpenCourseWare Open Knowledge Initiative OPLC All from MIT • Sponsoring organization pays costs • Considered part of its ‘mandate’ It usually manages it, too… and there may be side-benefits Government Funding Model • Government funds • Usually managed by arms-length board (but not always) • Intended to serve government objectives… Examples OLPC (again) Canada SchoolNet Universities, colleges, schools Hewlett Foundation • UNESCO OER projects • Commonwealth of Learning
  • Students: navigate your knowledge map as you work through exercises.Students: track your video and exercise progress in your profile.Coaches: Track all of your students with the class report.
  • When we talk about AHA-G, we are focusing on creating graphics that sparks the reader, or viewer to think about something relevant to what we want to say or write. If the graphic looks out of this world and is attractive is a bonus, but that is not the main objective of an AHA-G. In a way, an AHA-G wants to shock, click, inspire, and make you laugh, all at the same time. If we can shock (emotional engagement), click (Aha, I got it!), inspire (motivate interest), and make you laugh (Haha!)...Now that is a great AHA-G.
