NLafferty's curator insight, December 10, 2015 5:38 AM

This isn't directly about FOAM but rather about why you should consider open research. I think much of the thinking around open research and the benefits also apply to open education.

Open Education Special Interest Group | Association for Learning Technology | OER16 Edinburgh 19-20 April 2016 | Scoop.it
The Open Education SIG (OESIG) was established in March 2012. Education has the power to transform lives but too often access is restricted. Among those excluded are those who lack the right qualifications, who cannot pay the fees or who are unable to accommodate a fixed schedule. The Open Education movement seeks to remove barriers to education by freely sharing educational resources and adopting open educational practices. Remit The remit of this SIG is to support, develop, sustain and influence policy in open education.

Don't Underestimate The Power of OER

Don't Underestimate The Power of OER | OER16 Edinburgh 19-20 April 2016 | Scoop.it
The Open Education Resources movement provides an opportunity to put the power back in the hands of teachers and students. We need schools who support staff members in becoming creators who not only collaborate with colleagues across classrooms but also across local, state, and national boundaries. By undertaking this work, we will also be supporting our students in modeling the skills and behaviors that they are going to need to be successful in "real life."
