Open Educational Resources and the Distributed Web

Jenny Connected

He claims that open education can change the world and is a kind of social literacy that can transform society, connect us across the globe, and enable each of us to believe we have the capacity to become an important person in society. Technology on its own will not enable change.

How to Save the World

Like the friends of Godot, I am waiting, hopelessly, for the impossible. The story of climate change hangs on human behavior, not geophysics. The planet’s atmosphere will change but human nature won’t. Na Pali coast, Kaua’i — photo by me, taken two weeks ago.

Right up to the day before leaving we kept changing our minds about which wheelchair to take – should it be the fold-up one that would go in a taxi and was light to push, or should it be a heavier unfolding wheelchair with a bike attachment (tracker – as in photo)?

Changes Afoot for Microsoft OneNote

Michael Sampson - Currents

On the Silverside blog, I wrote about upcoming changes for Microsoft OneNote: One of my friends once covered himself in Post-It Notes and walked into his local Microsoft office. Read more: Changes Afoot for Microsoft OneNote. He was hoping to become the product manager for Microsoft OneNote – hence the attention-grabbing way of presenting himself – but his approach was stymied because the receptionist didn’t even know what OneNote was.

Creativity and experience on the distributed web

Just last week a friend was running a management game for a group of MSc students. Experience in learning changes the relation between teacher and student from one of persuasion (and even coercion) to one of creativity, co-work, and construction.

The Second Act: Community Guy Rises

Community Guy

But I’m the guy who loves online community and has spent the better part of my career trying to bring community engagement to life in the most impactful, world changing ways possible. I was the guy who bugged his friends and family at parties about the internet in the 90s. Outside of a very small circle of friends and family, everyone in my online world was shocked. “I Hello.

Homeschooling over time

Mathemagenic

I keep on thinking how needs of a homeschooling family change over time. Friends are found, choices made, routines are working. No data-based generalisations here, just observations. In the beginning it’s all about role-models and information. Finding people, who made the choice, and figuring out how to fit it in in the own circumstances. Vision (why and what) and boundary conditions.

Criticisms & Cures for Facilitating in Complexity

In work that involves social change, poorly designed evaluation can narrow the work to a few isolated outcomes, and leave people with the impression that complex problems can only be addressed by linear and predictable planning practices.

Likewise on the corporate side a singular focus on shareholder return and the pursuit of capital friendly jurisdictions with low tax rates and low wages means that corporations can reap economic benefits without any responsibility for the social effects of their policy influence. Why should they promote changes to redress an imbalance that favors so many of them, especially the most powerful?
