There is no doubt now that the video production community with new stakes in education is growing, as is the educational community with new stakes in video production.  Books will forever be important, and in-class, in-person instruction will forever be as essential to effective teaching as it is to parenting, but video has become the dominant communications medium of many of our lives, and screens – computer screens, cell phone screens, and tablets – the new, dominant form of information transmission.

The Landing: OER: Found in Translation

The Landing: OER: Found in Translation | The 21st Century | Scoop.it

Recently, I participated in a workshop on Open Educational Resources (OER) in which over twenty different languages were spoken by the attendees.  We quickly found that searching the term OER was not helpful in finding non-English OER.    So I created a wiki called “OER: Found in Translation,” a multi-lingual collection of good search terms to use to find OER in different languages.  It is a wiki so anyone can create and edit the translations.  I would like you to help translate the phrase “open education resources” into as many different languages as possible.
