Collaborative Open Webcasting Community
This week we continued a conversation that began on Twitter when Alec Couros went to his daughter’s Back to School Night. Along with Will Richardson, Lee Kolbert, and Angela Maiers, we discussed the issues we face as parents when walking into our own children’s classrooms. Alec could not join us but was with us in spirit….we hope.
This week, Lisa, Sheila, and Maria were joined by Kristin Hokanson in the chatroom and Alec Couros in the skype call to discuss copyright and fair use, copyleft and cc licensing, and the ethics surrounding it all.
2:45 – 3:30 Open, Social, Connected
Dr. Alec Couros is a professor of educational technology and media at the Faculty of Education, University of Regina. This presentation unravels a recent open graduate course offering titled “Open, Connected, Social” that was offered at the University of Regina, Winter 2008. The presentation describes the theories influencing the course, types of open practice, reflections and outcomes, and goes on to describe the emergence of “open teaching”.

What would you do with a magic wand to change education? That was the
topic for our conversation this week. It was from a question posed to
Lisa by David Warlick. Alec Couros and Paul Bogush joined us. Although
we didn’t stick to this topic per se, there was much conversation
around change in education and school. The folks in the chat room kept
thing going as well.
