olpc/sugar WikiEducator OpenWetWare PLoS Wiki based content aimed at making the school curriculum open
Resources currently aimed at primary and secondary education
Resources currently in English Work towards making WikiEducator an integral part of Sugar/olpc deployments
Add content that is language specific and topic-specific for individual deployment needs
WikiEducator could, potentially be transformed into a hub linking to web resources (such as Wikipedia) to provide content whose structure is aligned with educational principles. Educational Resource Hub Delivery of Public Health Resources to local communities Content (PLoS peer review articles) could tap onto the olpc delivery capabilities to produce 'bundles' that are compatible with the sugar platform, containing region-specific primary literature tranlated into local native languages so it can be accessed by local health practitioners and policy makers Open access, peer reviewed primary literature.
Several Journals that are topic specific.
Web based Aggregation of article information that has the potential of tranforming communities (for example, articles on malaria, chagas, and other Population Health issues).
House wiki versions of the articles in their original language
House translations into relevant native languages. Scientists + Publishers Primary + Secondary + Tertiary Educators Support on content update/fact checking
Alignment of primary, secondary and tertiary educational curricula which is region-specific and in native language
Promoting/making easier the transition between secondary and tertiary education
Tertiary institutions to provide mentoring and training programmes so that secondary students can graduate with marketable skills, easing their transition into the workforce
Science and Helath content delivery Exploit the creative commons licence to produce content delivery that is region-relevant and language-relevant.
Maintain communities informed of recent findings that are relevant to their Public Health need and issues. Society Exploit the open nature of Education, Science, and Scientific Publication, integrated with existent content delivery frameworks designed to operate even under low connectivity.
Information as a central transforming power for society, with its potential to influence governmental decision making through the implementation of evidence-based policy. Scientists + Educators + Delivery Universal standards of content that are based on scientific evidence and scientific consensus
Respond to local needs and adapt contents accordingly
Provide content in native language Educators + Publishers + Delivery Facilitate the access to primary resources that can inform educational curricula, and that are aligned with local Public Health issues, and that are available in native languages.
Create bundles that can be deployed within existing formats Creative Commons
OSS/FLOSS communities Open protocols
Open tertiary educational resources Can OWW house educational resources?
Can OWW house wiki versions of OA articles in different languages?
Can OWW provide a page that receives 'alerts' from WikiEducator when content needs to be fact checked/updated?
Can OWW provide a page that receives 'alerts' from PLoS when articles with potential community impact are published?
Can OWW provide a page for volunteers to go to to contribute to the project? Harware delivery through olpc or equivalent hardware
Connectivity (local mesh, internet, radio frequency)
Off-line wiki content
Content reaches pupils, educators, as well as their families --> wide community reach
Can WikiEducator host content in different languages? Can WikiEducator aggregate a list of 'requests' for tertiary educators contributions?
Can WikiEducator host a hub to facilitate mentoring/skill training? Coordinate efforts to create a central hub that links the different stages of knowledge, from discovery to integration into educational curriculum.
