Dron, Jon & Anderson, Terry - Teaching Crowds. Learning and Social Media - 2014 (PDF)

Dron, Jon & Anderson, Terry - Teaching Crowds. Learning and Social Media - 2014 (PDF) | Open Educational Resources (OER) | Scoop.it

"In Teaching Crowds, Dron and Anderson introduce a new model for understanding and exploiting the pedagogical potential of Web-based technologies, one that rests on connections — on networks and collectives — rather than on separations. Recognizing that online learning both demands and affords new models of teaching and learning, the authors show how learners can engage with social media platforms to create an unbounded field of emergent connections. These connections empower learners, allowing them to draw from one another’s expertise to formulate and fulfill their own educational goals. In an increasingly networked world, developing such skills will, they argue, better prepare students to become self-directed, lifelong learners."

Javiera Atenas: Bibliography of OER, ROER and related subjects

"During the last 4 years and with a little help of my friends (mostly @leohavemann@ernestopriego) I collected a large (very large) list of references on OER, Open Education, Open Educational Practices, repositories, open access and related themes which I used to write my PhD and all the papers / columns / presentations we have written, and, basically this lists has been stored in my ref management system for a while, quietly, but suddenly this week I beed asked to share my list of references by few of my fellow OER researchers, so here it is… but before, please read the notes below."

Frank Catalano  - The Unruly Playground: Free #OER and Paid Digital Materials (EdSurge News) | Open Educational Resources (OER) | Scoop.it

"

Is the relationship between Open Educational Resources (OER) advocates and traditional educational publishing companies like a playground dominated by bullies? Or more like two groups of kids, ignoring each other as much as possible as they play?

If current activity is any indication, it’s a little of both--and neither. The industry is ready to play nicely with OER. But it doesn’t appear to know how."

Leigh-Anne Perryman et al.: The role of OER localisation in building a knowledge partnership for development: insights from the TESSA and TESS-India teacher education projects

"OER continue to support the needs of educators and learners globally. However, it is clear that to maximise their potential more focus is needed on reuse and repurposing. Accordingly, adapting OER for local contexts remains one of the greatest challenges of the open education movement, with little written about how to support communities of users to adapt materials.

This paper emerges from the ongoing debate around education quality in low income countries (LICs), taking as its focus two OER projects led by the Open University –TESSA and TESS-India. These projects have collaboratively developed core banks of OERs for teacher education that respond to regional and national priorities and pedagogies. In this paper we explore how the projects have supported localisation of the OERs and how processes of OER localisation can contribute to more equal knowledge partnerships in the pursuit of education quality."

Javiera Atenas & Leo Havemann - Questions of quality in repositories of open educational resources: a literature review

"Open educational resources (OER) are teaching and learning materials which are freely available and openly licensed. Repositories of OER (ROER) are platforms that host and facilitate access to these resources. ROER should not just be designed to store this content – in keeping with the aims of the OER movement, they should support educators in embracing open educational practices (OEP) such as searching for and retrieving content that they will reuse, adapt or modify as needed, without economic barriers or copyright restrictions. This paper reviews key literature on OER and ROER, in order to understand the roles ROER are said or supposed to fulfil in relation to furthering the aims of the OER movement."

David Wiley: The Open Education Infrastructure, and Why We Must Build It

"Despite thoughtful disagreement about the term “infrastructure” from people I greatly respect, I continue to find the term extraordinarily useful in my own thinking about how we improve education. As interest in competency-based education continues to grow, we have an incredible opportunity to expand and to open the core pieces of the education infrastructure."

Jan Neumann: Some Basic Thoughts About OER Policy

Jan Neumann: Some Basic Thoughts About OER Policy | Open Educational Resources (OER) | Scoop.it

"National OER policies determine the framework within which other OER actors can develop. By doing so they form a mighty leverage to shape the OER ecosystem of a country. Though we are still at the beginning, initial achievements are promising. Approaches like the OER policy registry by Creative Commons provide the possibilities to follow and speed up the development. Supportive will also be, that openness and sharing are among the core values of the OER movement. If we manage to obtain this also for the field of policy by sharing our experiences and lessons learned, fast progression should be possible."
