E-learn 2009 About the OCW Consortium The OpenCourseWare Consortium is a worldwide community of hundreds of higher education institutions and associated organizations committed to advancing open education and its impact on global education. We seek to engender a culture of openness in education to allow everyone, everywhere to access the education they desire, while providing a shared body of knowledge and best practices that can be drawn upon for innovative and effective approaches. The OCW Consortium helps to solve social problems through expansion of access to education. It does this by leveraging its sources of expert opinion, its global network and its position as the principal voice of open education. What is OpenCourseWare?

FreeCulture.org - Students for Free Culture Docencia en ambientes de apendizaje mediados por TICs (UPB) Liberate Education: How to Start a Free School This how-to guide was written for Shareable by organizers (especially Aaron Rosenblum) from EXCOtc, a collective of Experimental Colleges in the Twin Cities of Minnesota that share a visions of a better world, offering free and open classes, and building a community around education for social change. EXCO-TC began eight years ago and is now made up of three collaborating local organizing chapters: Macalester/St. Paul, the U of M, and the Academia Communitaria. The Free Schooling Movement The origin of free schools (or free skools) in the United States can be traced back to 1911 when the first Modern School opened in New York City’s Lower East Side. Inspired by the work of Francesco Ferrer and La Escuela Moderna in Catalonia, Spain, a group of NYC-based anarchists opened their school embracing an alternative learning model for youth and adults based on academic freedom, democratic organization, and socially conscious education.

Education/EduCourse/Participants This is the list of course participants. We selected just over 20 people from the list of sign-ups. We also arranged project ideas that seemed to focus on similar areas into groups. This is to help participants identify common interests. We would encourage participants to work together in small groups -- or even to pick a single shared project -- if they like. Feel free to move your idea to another group if you feel you are in the wrong space. I have also added timezone information to make coordination easier [1].

Education Education is the means by which we thrive, individually and collectively. In recent times, the growing complexity and interconnectedness of our now global society has challenged the effectiveness of traditional education systems, which were designed for the needs of the industrial era. The old model was built upon the idea that a worker’s job was to apply the basic skills they’d learned in school to specific tasks. To thrive in the 21st century, however, we need to go beyond that—and teach people how to learn, engage, and create. This is the spirit that drives IDEO’s designs for learning.
