Hope some of you might consider presenting for the K12 Online Conference 2014.

Session proposals are due Aug. 15.

If you aren't familiar with this conference, it's free and open and delivered through asynchronous videos, so no travel required!

I'm doing a couple of workshops on open education this summer, and would like to gather some ideas on what open ed is, why people do/do not open up their teaching/learning. So I've created a survey. Please consider filling it out--there are just four (open-ended) questions, and I'd love your thoughts on any or all of them. Thanks!

I've signed up for this; I am particularly interested in the creation of OERs.

Building

Develop open educational resources that embed web literacy and making skills with other topics, such as history or biology (or that you might already be teaching). Using open practices, you'll make learning materials that are relevant, free and designed for others to use and remix."

In our presentation yesterday by Carolina Botero on openness and Creative Commons, Carolina mentioned a documentary on remix culture that talks about copyright and remixing in a digital age: RiP: A Remix Manifesto. You can see it on Vimeo for free.

I wanted to add this one line to this site written by Mark Mcquire about Duke University's FutureEd xMooc which I took a few weeks ago. The sentence opened my eyes to what a PLN might represent in Higher Ed: disruption!

"CCK08 (Connectivism and Connective Knowledge, 2008) and the cMOOCs that followed could be described as pedagogically disruptive, as the coordinators (George Siemens, Stephen Downes, Dave Cormier) and followers were (and still are) experimenting with techniques that are intended to help individuals to build and maintain their own personal learning network, rather than focusing on creating better (traditional, institutional) courses."
