Why Open Education Matters | Disruptive Nostalgia in Education UK | Scoop.it

"Today Creative Commons, the U.S. Department of Education, and the Open Society Institute launch the Why Open Education Matters Video Competition. The competition will award cash prizes, provided by the Open Society Institute, of up to $25,000 for the best short videos that explain the use and promise of free, high-quality open educational resources and describe the benefits and opportunities these materials create for teachers, students and schools."


A wonderful creative opportunity for educators and students to make videos that promote the use of high quality open educational resources. I am sure this initiative will create some wonderful reusable video resources and spread the word on the value of open educational resources/


I can't think of  any  good reason not to enter, nor can I wait to view the submissions. More info here.
