It's great to see a crowdfunding (crowdsource funding) site for Education! Have a look and see if your education or training activities might benefit from such funding or at least the exposure to this community online.

THE OPEN BOOK

"THE OPEN BOOK is a crowdsourced, multi-author publication built to contextualise the international movement for open knowledge in the words of those who are helping build it today. What are the aims and motivations of this movement’s pioneers, and how do concepts about digital transparency, open data and the Commons impact society? Based on contributions from a variety of thought leaders working in fields as diverse as sustainability, design, business and development, THE OPEN BOOK will serve as a platform for discussion and a launching pad for new ideas about the future of a global open knowledge movement in a time of rapid technological and societal progress" from source: http://issuu.com/finnish-institute/

ghbrett's insight:

Simply put, this is a great read about the many facets of Open Knowledge. It includes a chapter about Peeragogy (http://peeragogy.org)
