CSCL to enable teachers to "tinker" (JSB)
not by governments
not by technology
by open education!
VLE pigeon-holes you as either tutor, learner or admin
personalization becomes barrier
therefor restricting use
increased quality of tools
open source to remove license
fine-tuned control of access
much more worrying than technical ones, that will be resolved
copyrighted material in open system: people worry
willingness to share?
books from 60s and 70s
worry that we may be doomed for failure if we don't deal with this
availability, how many, what form, critical mass
accessibility, where found, by whom
level of use, degree of participation
granularity of offerings
greater resource based learning tempered with greater interactivity
tuition and support separated from content
many versions of same content for different contexts
curriculum design in content rich environment
mix between, pedagogic support, self reflection, peer support, professional support
too much talking next to each other, rather than confronting views
needed a brutal organiser!
remote access to real labs
collectivity, social software
otherwise this will not have impact
Diana: put tools in teacher hands to enable them to tinker
Andy: valued, include in promotion
Stuart: community is others who teach same discipline
audience: sticks and carrots are "old school" - they're not on web2.0
posting audio on itunes music store, good for ego
you are what you measure, how do you measure the value of all this for teachers and learners?
communities form around content
we need fundamentally new way to do this
maybe it will be more the entrepreneurs than the educators that make this happen?
