When Educational Resources Are Open
Breck, Judy
Educational Technology, v47 n6 p46-50 Nov-Dec 2007
This article is a partial look at what the future of education might be if educational resources become open online. Intertwingularity is discussed as a general term for what OER will do online. Predictions about an open education future are based on nine quotations from books by popular writers about our networked age. When the network mechanisms described become a reality for education, "intertwingularity will enable knowledge," as David Weinberger writes in Everything Is Miscellaneous. OER will allow knowledge to be formed, ideas to emerge, and understanding to be shared. (Contains 14 footnotes.)
