Elearning and global competency #flatclass #globaled 04/13/2012
I met Jutta Treviranus from the FLOE project. This is about creating open resources that are translatable, move from place to place, can be modified and made accessible to everyone. It is has tools that will make your content accessible for all learners. If you're making free content, you'll want to go to this website and look at their tools to help make your content accessible to everyone. This is great because it can help translate into other languages for the content we're creating for Flat Classroom.
Also: This website FLOE creates tools to help you match learner needs with suitable Open Education REsources. Service that helps modify resources to meet the needs of the individual learner. This is the infancy of personalizing learning using free resources to help everyone. This is phenomenal.
Here is the presentation I gave to the Open education forum at the Berkman Center at Harvard - it was a very short overview of Flat Classroom and designed to make the point about creating symbiotic learning relationships. Students don't consume to learn - thinking you can make a video and "teach" is pretty preposterous. This talks about pulling people into your network and how to get them there. Again, it was very short and then a panel discussion afterwards.
