Education is on the edge of its own Reformation
What is education?

'those who share the most
are the most successful'
eg Open textbooks:

- make education more affordable
-can be edited/adapted
researcher vs publisher issue: out of balance: publisher
has legal copyrights to control the work...law and policy
allow us to say 'It's mine!'

Open journals host openly licensed research articles
using technology to open formal courses
assign readings freely available
putting h/wk on blogs/wikis
using social media for some purposes
courses with alternative accreditation
eg MOOCs
'Openness is the only
means of doing education'
'Education is sharing'
If there is no
means of sharing there is no education
'Expertise can be given away without losing it'
but expressions of expertise are sometimes not available eg a book
digital expressions are 'non-rivalrous'
policy is the nemesis of technology
The role of new media/technology is to increase our capacity to be open
The more open we are the better education will be
