The Future of Mobile Learning | EDUCAUSE

The Future of Mobile Learning | EDUCAUSE | Open Educational Resources in Higher Education | Scoop.it

This bulletin provides an overview of the current state of mobile learning in higher education, speculates on future directions, and suggests questions that educators might ask of themselves and their institutions in preparation for the onset of mobile education. Ignoring mobile learning is not an option when it has already begun to show a strong potential to disrupt existing pedagogical infrastructure, including that of online education. It is up to those in higher education to adapt this freewheeling trend to best serve the core mission of educating students.

IT Sligo/NDLR Teaching and Learning Webinar Series: Open Badges and Learning: A Disruptive Technology for Education and Accreditation?

IT Sligo/NDLR Teaching and Learning Webinar Series: Open Badges and Learning: A Disruptive Technology for Education and Accreditation? | Open Educational Resources in Higher Education | Scoop.it

According to some, there's a "badging movement" underway that has the potential to change the landscape of education. Learners will be accumulating "digital badges" that are not just icons representing something they have learned or mastered, but active links back to the criteria for earning the badge and perhaps the tool used to make the assessment and the work, project, or performance submitted as evidence. Funded by the MacArthur foundation and developed by Mozilla (the open source folks who brought you Firefox and the Mozilla browser before that), an infrastructure is under construction that will support badge issuers, badge earners and badge displayers, which will likely include FaceBook, Linked In, and other public places where badges can be displayed and "clickable."

The openness-creativity cycle in education - A Perspective

The openness-creativity cycle in education - A Perspective | Open Educational Resources in Higher Education | Scoop.it

By  MartinWeller

 

Abstract:

The nature of openness in education has transformed from just relating to open access to encompass a wide range of interpretations. This paper explores the concept of an 'open scholar' whose practice is shaped by digital and networked technologies. It is argued that openness represents an effective working method in this environment, and that creativity plays a key role in realising this. The relationship between creativity and open educational resources is outlined to demonstrate that there is a positive feedback loop between the two processes.

Open Culture

Open Culture | Open Educational Resources in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Open Culture bills itself as a source for the best free cultural and educational media on the web. I will leave it up to you to decide as I am always leery of anything that claims to be the best. That being said, it is an interesting space and one that is rich with possibilities. Here you will find free audio books, online courses, movies, language and literature lessons, eBooks and more. As an example of some of what you might find, this little gem came from the section labeled film.

 

Did you see the movie Dark Knight? Do you know what film critics mean when they say, “an action scene is flawed and violates the language of film making”? Take a look at this three part lesson titled- The Dark Knight: Anatomy of a Flawed Action Scene. Now you can extend the concept of grammar to that of film making and the importance of following rules for clarity of communication and intent.

Why Universities Will Be the Biggest Awarder of Badges (and When) | iterating toward openness

Why Universities Will Be the Biggest Awarder of Badges (and When) | iterating toward openness | Open Educational Resources in Higher Education | Scoop.it

As interest in badges continues to increase, it occurs to me that in their passion for gameification, innovation, and outright reinvention, many in the field are overlooking the place where badges make the most sense of all – the formal higher education institution. There are at least two high-level reasons why higher education is the perfect place for badging.

Five critiques of the Open Educational Resources movement | jeremyknox.net

Five critiques of the Open Educational Resources movement | jeremyknox.net | Open Educational Resources in Higher Education | Scoop.it

This post will review existing literature on Open Educational Resources, introducing five critiques: 1.) An under-theorisation of ‘openness’, in which the concepts of positive and negative liberty will be used to suggest a neglect of coherent theorisation concerning the practice of self-directed learning. 2.) The simultaneous privileging and rejection of institutional authority, where OER literature will be shown to endorse the reputations of established institutions while claiming liberation from them. 3.) The diminishing of the role of pedagogy, in which OER will be aligned with an untheorised learner-centred model of education. 4.) Humanistic assumptions of unproblematic self-direction and autonomy, and 5.) an alignment with the needs of capital, in which a Foucauldian interpretation of subjectivity will offer alternative perspectives on the notions of power and emancipation in OER discourse. It is suggested that these critiques may provide a framework for OER to develop a theoretically rigorous area of scholarship.

Stanford Offers Free Game Theory Course

Stanford Offers Free Game Theory Course | Open Educational Resources in Higher Education | Scoop.it

"The Prisoner’s Dilemma; Colonel Blotto; the Diner’s Dilemma; the Pirate Game — these are the astoundingly cool and frequently counterintuitive puzzles that have perplexed mankind’s silly little irrational and emotionally beholden brains since their conception, or at least since we saw A Beautiful Mind in 2001. To stick with the movie theme, there’s a piece of us that wants to be Rain Man or Good Will — or (be still my beating heart!) Richard Feynman. Why has there never been a biopic on Feynman, perhaps starring Woody Allen? Oh, well, I guess that’s beside the point.

The point is, now you can join these luminaries of rationality. Or at least you can understand why the strongest pirate need only give up two pieces of gold from a 100-dubloon chest in order to avoid being chucked overboard by his four perfectly rational underlings (see Pirate Game above)."
