Open scholarship

Learning with 'e's

There is much talk about openness in education. Most of us by now are familiar with open learning , and many could describe their use of open source software such as Moodle, Mahara, Linux and Open Office. Many can also articulate what open educational resources look like, and have knowledge of Massive Open Online Courses otherwise known as MOOCs. How many though, are familiar with the concept of open scholarship?

Fabulous learning spaces

Learning with 'e's

Moving through from reception into the main school, it was evident to see that open plan, flexible spaces were the key design feature, and personalised learning the norm. It was refreshing to see that the school is also fully open source in its software use. He argued that the most equitable way to manage this to avoid any digital divides is to provide Open Source Software to all students.

The road is open

Learning with e's

My opening keynote focused on openness in education, and I made a call for more open scholarship and open educational practices. Because I was 'preaching to the converted' (the audience was made up of around 300 teachers and other professionals who were already sold on the idea of using open source tools such as Moodle and Mahara in their work), my presentation was very well received, and there were some excellent, thoughtful questions at the end.

Opening up #learning: Access to knowledge

Learning with 'e's

Learning is opening up like never before. Open learning was originally used to describe the opening up on education to previously disenfranchised individuals - those who had not followed the traditional pathways to education. In the 70s and 80s, many people suddenly had a chance to pursue a degree when the open universities were established. The British Open University for example, was nicknamed 'the university of the second chance'.

A professor of educational technology at the British Open University, he has been an advocate of openness in education for many years, but he expresses doubts over the outcome of the battle.

Learning first, technology second

Learning with 'e's

Blogging can be used to engage children in creative writing , while making videos is excellent for problem solving and collaborative work. Such tools are in fact large and complex networked systems, and are very expensive to buy if they are proprietary, and very time and labour intense if they are open source. Many organisations open up a large can of worms if they don''t think through their digital strategy before buying into new technology.

2020 Classrooms

Learning with e's

Melissa Brown Boyle , an elementary school teacher in the USA, predicted that school classrooms of the future will have "fewer individual student desks and more tables or open floor space conducive to discussion and movement". She also believes in moving learning beyond traditional settings: "open discussion space must be global not just local, virtual links are just as real as graffiti on desks.” Will we still need classrooms by 2020?
