Farrow, Robert & Deimann, Markus: Bildung as a critical foundation for Open Education | Think Connect Share | Scoop.it

"Our focus here will not be exclusively on open educational resources (OER): it will be stressed that ‘openness’ in education necessarily shifts the focus from content (OER) to practices (OEP) that are necessary for the use of that content (Mackey & Jacobson, 2011, p. 62; cf. Weller, 2011)."

The MOOC Quality Project

The MOOC Quality Project | Think Connect Share | Scoop.it

The MOOC Quality Project will ask 12 experts in 12 weeks for their best thinking on MOOCs and quality. 

MOOCs represent the latest stage in the evolution of open educational resources. First was open access to course content, and then access to free online courses. Accredited institutions are now accepting MOOCs as well as free courses and experiential learning as partial credit toward a degree. The next disruptor will likely mark a tipping point: an entirely free online curriculum leading to a degree from an accredited institution.

Pamela D Lloyd's curator insight, March 23, 2013 6:02 PM

As a writer, I find this set of predictions both interesting and, well, less than overwhelming. I'd like to see more creativity, especially with regard to the "least likely" possibilities, and less focus on tech companies. I'm more interested in thinking about what life might be like, than in which social media giant is on top. What predictions do you have, and what do you think are the odds for or against?

Ness Crouch's curator insight, April 19, 2013 2:11 PM

Hmmm can we predict the future... will be interesting to see what happens with these tools.

Stephen Gwilliam's curator insight, April 30, 2013 7:40 PM

Q. How are we best preparing our students with 21st century fluencies in our schools given these predictions?
