http://ole.org/ This is exciting OER work! We need to get on board with these types of open content initiatives in our US schools! Consider this closing quotation from the FastCompany article: “This idea, common among these tech-driven educational entrepreneurs, imagines a new role for teachers. “The main transformational change that needs to happen is for the teacher to transform from the purveyor of information to the coach,” says Weinberger of Innovations for Learning. As Rowe puts it, “Up until very recently, most communications were hub-and-spoke, one to many. The Internet is a many- to-many environment, which is in the early stages of having a major impact on education. It involves a fairly major change in the concept of what education is, which is one of the reasons we use the term ‘learning’ as distinct from ‘education.’ It’s student-centered and student-empowered.”” Bring on the learning revolution!
