KF:  This one interests me as my incomplete study was entitled "Developing digital games-based process drama as performance".  I discussed an approach I call "generative play" - an open-ended, socially driven, real-time drama process framed as a roleplaying game.  It is intended that generative polay operates as a constructivist, metaphor-driven enquiry-based approach to learning.

Why Open Education Matters

Why Open Education Matters | Learning Happens Everywhere! | Scoop.it

You may have heard the buzz about the "Why Open Education Matters" video contest, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education, Creative Commons, and Open Society Foundations. The contest was meant to raise awareness about the promise of open educational resources (OER) -- free online materials licensed under Creative Commons, which allows educators to reuse, revise, remix and redistribute the content to their heart's content.

 

All told, there were more than sixty video submissions, and many of the makers outdid themselves with beautiful, passionate, moving videos. The Public Choice voting is open from now through July 11th. I myself am going to have a hard time picking just one to vote on -- so I've chosen a few of my favorites for this playlist.

The 3 Pillars of Content Curation

The 3 Pillars of Content Curation | Learning Happens Everywhere! | Scoop.it
Curation is already becoming an overused word but it's an increasingly important one. Not least because the way in which we discover content that we like or find useful, and how it gets in front of us or gets our attention, is changing radically. With an explosion of choice and noise, and attention becoming the new scarcity, how we choose to curate what gets that attention (or, as below, how it is curated for us) is hugely important to anyone in the business of creating content. And let's face it, that's now everybody. So here's my take on the three pillars of content curation that will increasingly (and already actively) shape the future of content consumption and distribution:

IDEO Labs - An Exquisite Corpse Experiment | ILOVE | Learning Happens Everywhere! | Scoop.it

Watch the first chapter.

In traditional storytelling, we rely on words to conjure images in our minds. But what happens when we’re provided with visuals that represent each of the story’s words, but not its larger context? And what if the story itself is collaborative and nonlinear—and the images that represent it keep changing?

This site, inspired by the exquisite corpse model of storytelling, is our attempt to find out.
