We propose that one of the barriers to adoption of Open Educational Resources (OERs) in common teaching practices is the lack of transparency of practitioners’ ‘thinking’ around the production and consumption of those resources.
Thefore we propose to move from a paradigm of opening up contents and OER to a paradigm of opening up people’s thinking about OERs.
Our objective is to make this thinking visible and exportable in a way that support the emergence of collective intelligence around OER. To cater for this we designed Cohere, a first prototype socio-technical infrastructure to gather Collective Intelligence around OER.
You can explore more these concepts by looking at the PPT presentation embedded here below. This is a presentation for Ed-Media 2010 Conference, http://www.aace.org/conf/edmedia/, to be held in Toronto, Canada, June 29 –July 2, 2010.
If you want to know more about Cohere you can also watch the movie, embedded here below, from the submission to the Mozzilla Firefox Competition 2009: Jetpack for Learning. In this movie we explain how Cohere can be used to enhance Web-Annotation to more effective learning.
Please visit the OLnet project for info on Cohere development and demo, or look at the references in this cloud.
