    1. 7 things you should know about This page offers two lists of technologies. One relates to learning technologies and the other to campus IT. In either case, one clicks "see all" and is shown a list of many up and coming technologies. One can click the links to get a discussion of seven things the user should know about these technologies. Reports are two pages and follow a set format that includes a brief story or illustration. These introduce the visitor to the use of the technology but do not provide extensive explanation; it is an introduction. Technologies listed on these pages are often but not always technologies that the average instructional designer may put to use. Rating: 3/5

    1. Modularized and Disaggregated Degrees

      This will continue to grow, in my opinion, because we are trying to prepare students for jobs that haven't even been created yet. Therefore, I see students that will build their own degrees for jobs that they want to create once they move into the workforce. Exciting!

    2. Despite these options, degree completion in higher education is stymied by factors that go beyond these efforts, and closing the achievement gap continues to be a difficult challenge

      I wonder if we need to think beyond digital tools to really address the achievement gap.

      Not to beat a dead horse, but just like we should maybe always think of digital literacies in the plural, we should also think about digital fluencies as there is certainly more than one type or kind of fluency.

    1. Meanwhile, IT organizations are often defined by what's necessary rather than what's possible, and the cumulative weight of an increasingly complex communications infrastructure weighs ever heavier.

      In the middle of a deeper exploration of the 2014 edtech landscape.

    2. In our main article, we argue that those of us in higher education, rather than offloading our vision to venture capital-inspired "solutions" for education, should be using open architecture, through open-source applications, to reinvest in creative people, processes, and possibilities-that is, to reclaim innovation.

      A call for and examples of opening knowledge practices.

    1. I imagine it is possible that personalized and adaptive learning could well preserve that which is sacred in the faculty-student relationship, freeing faculty to focus on what matters most. After all, what I cherish most about the colleges and universities I have attended are the human connections.

      This seems like what everyone who values the human connections in education wants — and promotes as a healthy outcome of technology-enhanced learning — but do we have any evidence that this hope is borne out? It seems that most technology interventions in education are happening in an environment where there are also strong forces working to reduce the costs — especially labor costs — and so machines are most often displacing human connections rather than freeing up time for more.

    2. Growing up as an immigrant to this world of technology-enabled possibility filled me with a sense of endless wonder that may come less easily to natives.

      The idea that a "digital immigrant" may have a more positive relationship with digital technology than a "digital native".

    1. We, the Architects. I've made this point elsewhere, but what is both exciting and daunting is that the shift to a component-based approach provides an unprecedented opportunity to shape, rethink, plan, and design our digital learning environments.7 An architect is a proactive agent who looks to plan structures and environments to accommodate future usage. By taking the component approach, we can all adopt an architect's perspective and work to design the learning environments we want and need.

      <3 this!

      Still remember I used the word architect in the first draft of the 'unLMS' paper but was refuted by one reviewer.

      The component-based approach is probably urging us to take an architect perspective. My intuition is working as architects requires awareness of many cross-cutting ideas -- components and 'the whole', design and engineering, history and human values, and so forth.

    1. Data has value; what do we owe students when we collect their data?

      It would behoove us to be clear about all the "we"s that collect student data: from teachers, to depts, to institutions, to software vendors, to accreditors, to govt agencies, to third parties that harvest data from these other "we"s. Perhaps our first duty is to help students understand the constellation of data collection and sharing they (and we all) participate in, so they can start understanding and be better prepared to make informed choices.

    1. Brought to you by EDUCAUSE

      Not a tagline I ever thought I'd see come along with the HR. Great to see so many individuals/orgs/and even brand new projects jump in to support this important work.

    1. Administrators who are charged with the development of open education policy may not fully understand the opportunities inherent in OER and OEP, partic-ularly for learners.

      The other key area of alignment: with learners.

    2. Open Education: Policies

      Join other folks annotating the full PDFs of @EDUCAUSELI's other two related posts about content and practices in open education:

      2. 7 Things You Should Know About Open Education: Practices
    3. They clearly align the open education policy with the university’s mission statement and strategic goals.

      Institutional alignment is absolutely critical so the policies can be shaped for the institution and so leadership can provide aligned support.

    1. Open Education: Practices

      Join other folks annotating the full PDFs of @EDUCAUSELI's other two related posts about content and policies in open education:

      1. 7 Things You Should Know About Open Education: Content
      2. 7 Things You Should Know About Open Education: Policies

      While I think this post does a good job of summarizing OEP, I'm disheartened to see the piece shaped so clearly from the perspective that OER is the necessary heart or foundation of OEP. From my POV, OER and open-licensing is a key infrastructural component, but is neither necessary nor sufficient in the larger and more important project to "reconceptualize and improve pedagogy and advance authentic, participatory, engaged learning" that this work rightly champions. Why must OEP always rest so heavily on OER? It's as if we have mistaken tactics for goals.

  7. Jul 2018
    1. Embodying a commitment to learner-driven education, OEP involves students in “active, constructive engagement with [open] content, tools and services in the learning process” in ways designed to help promote learners’ self-management, cre-ativity, and ability to work in teams.

      The editorial addition of "[open]" in this quote betrays what seems like an underlying bias in this work: that open educational PRACTICES require and are always based on open educational RESOURCES. Hence the move to changing OEP to "OER-enabled pedagogy" below. I would argue that yes, there is a deep connection between OEP and OER, that OEP benefits from using OER, but that OEP is possible without OER. And unlike, Abruzzi's story, one might just as easily start from an OEP experience and eventually come to use OER as a part of it.

    2. OEP provide the architecture and philosophical underpin-ning for fulfilling the promise of using OER to expand collabora-tive, inclusive, accessible, and active learning and related pedagogy.

      Again, this makes it seem like OEP is solely an outgrowth of OER, when I would argue that "expanding collaborative, inclusive, accessible, and active learning" is a primary goal that may or may not engage OER.

    3. A key tenet is the positioning of the learner as a central, active player in the learning experience.

      Agreed. And this tenet is far more important that the copyright status of the materials involved.

    4. Going forward, practitioners and researchers envision that the focus around OEP will evolve from a relatively narrow emphasis on development, revising, and distribution of OER to further development of related practices, architectures, principles, and policies

      This imagines that current OEP activities are more focused on OER than may in fact be the case.

    1. an institutional rather than a user focus

      This is key: Desires to use portfolios in institutional/program assessment practices are part of what has made them cumbersome. Portfolio use in programs that emphasized their value for students and learning have always been the best examples in my opinion (eg, Portland State, LaGuardia CC, Clemson), even if they also use them in institutional/program assessment too.

    2. e-portfolios did not become the standard form of assessment as proposed

      Agreed, and yet I still believe that portfolios are a powerful part of what some call "authentic" assessment practices.

    3. for many students owning their own domain and blog remains a better route to establishing a lifelong digital identity

      DoOO is definitely a great goal, especially if it is viewed in part as a portfolio activity, so people use their domains to build up a lifelong portfolio. What seems key is having the right supports in place to help people and institutions reach such goals not only technically, but most importantly, as a set of practices integrated into their personal and institutional workflows.

    4. e-portfolios

      FWIW, I think the eportfolio community coalesced around not using a hyphen or capital P in the term. Some prefer to just talk about "portfolios", reasoning that the "electronic" part was not a necessary ingredient and probably should be updated to "digital" regardless.

    5. What has changed, what remains the same, and what general patterns can be discerned from the past twenty years in the fast-changing field of edtech?

      Join me in annotating @mweller's thoughtful exercise at thinking through the last 20 years of edtech. Given Martin's acknowledgements of the caveats of such an exercise, how can we augment this list to tell an even richer story?

    6. 2008: E-Portfolios

      My first entry into edtech was in eportfolios, back in 2004 when I was at Portland State University. PSU was probably an early adopter of eportfolios, so 2008 may be the right year to put them in as a wider focus.

    1. OER support the practice of open ed-ucation, an umbrella term for the mix of open content, practices, policies, and communities that, properly leveraged, can provide broad access to effective learning opportunities for everyone.

      Great to see my earlier comment led to a fix here: "opportunities" now replaces "materials" and it all makes more sense.

    2. Working in an open education envi-ronment might better prepare students for work in today’s in-creasingly collaborative and interdisciplinary workplaces.

      This would be a great part of a "7 Things..." that focuses on open education in addition to open content.

    3. Many practitioners argue that open education could be positioned as a core education prac-tice, with learners producing, evaluating, using, revising, and shar-ing OER

      maybe add: "as one of the many practices enabled by open education."

    4. Open Education: Content

      I'm a little confused that the title of this work is "7 Things You Should Know About Open Education", but it seems to focus mostly on OER. Is this the first in a series of "7 Things..." works about open education and content is just the first topic?

    5. OER support the practice of open ed-ucation, an umbrella term for the mix of open content, practices, policies, and communities that, properly leveraged, can provide broad access to effective learning materials for everyone.

      Not to quibble, but this sentence makes it seem like the primary outcome of open education is to provide "effective learning materials", which I think unnecessarily limits what #OEP can generate.

    1. Twenty-seven million to 29 million viewers, on average, tuned in every night to hear Walter Cronkite on the CBS Evening News.
    1. "His ratings on the day he left the 'Evening News' were bigger than all three network newscasts together today," Socolow said. "He had an average rating of 27 million to 29 million viewers."
    1. In the mid-1960s, approximately 90 percent of televisions in use at the dinner hour were turned to one of the network newscasts. And by 1980, their combined audience peaked at 52.1 million viewers. By contrast, in 2011, according to the Pew Research Center, only about 22 million viewers watched them, and their share of the television audience at the dinner hour had declined to 29 percent. This is why the Cronkite era is widely regarded as television news’s “golden age.” While he occupied the anchor’s chair, many more Americans watched news programs broadcast by the networks, and those programs were more serious and substantive than television news today.
