The changing value of knowledge (Cristobal Cobo)

"The notion of openness in education is usually associated just with resources - whether content or technologies - and initiatives in this field have often focused too narrowly on the mere generation of those resources, paying little attention to the "social life" of materials and relevant cultural practices.

Open Educational Resources (OER) and, most recently, the so-called Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), among other open education initiatives, seem to be reshaping the value of content in Higher Education (HE).

However, it is worth reflecting on the extent to which offering open content may be considered disruptive these days. In this presentation I will argue that we need to go beyond the content-centered focus of OER and look at the contexts of learning, both inside and outside of formal education. That means to better articulate at least three key dimensions: content, containers (platforms,technologies), and context."

The College of Idaho is banning Yik Yak, and here’s why | aect | Scoop.it
It seems like the 2014-2015 school year was truly the year of Yik Yak, the app that allows users in your area to post anonymous statements for anyone within a certain radius to see. While the school year is winding down, the app is still going strong—except when schools like the College of Idaho step in. After the campus's safety office received no less than seven Yak-related complaints, the school decided to take a closer look at these threats and how to address them. Those who complained said

The story is the foundation to interactive storytelling. There are strict rules to the reporting and news gathering for the story. Distribution, the launch and the publicity that follows, has its own strict set of rules, too. What’s flexible, says Antonopoulos, is the narrative: “This is a space to infuse technology, use good visuals, and transform the story into an experience.”
