8 Open Social Distributed Participatory Collative aggregation Networked ComplexDynamic Conole and Alevizou, 2010

9 A personal perspective What are the most effective uses of mobile and online technologies for education?

10 Open practices Digital scholarship Sharing and exchange of teaching ideas Beyond the classroom A distributed, global community Peer critique and support Challenging established paradigms

11 Promise and reality Social and participatory media offer new ways to communicate and collaborate Wealth of free resources and tools Not fully exploited Replicating bad pedagogy Lack of time and skills

12 The 7Cs of Learning Design Conceptualise Communicate Capture Consider Collaborate Combine Consolidate

13 Course features Pedagogical approaches Principles Guidance and support Content and activities Reflection and demonstration Communication and collaboration

16 OER and MOOCs Over ten years of the Open Educational Resource (OER) movement Hundreds of OER repositories worldwide Presence on iTunesU 2012 Times year of the MOOC

17 The OPAL metromap Evaluation shows lack of uptake by teachers and learners Shift from development to community building and articulation of OER practice

18 POERUP outputs An inventory of more than 300 OER initiatives 11 country reports and 13 mini-reports 7 in-depth case studies 3 EU-wide policy papers
