Modeling Education from the Values of Open Source - Alex Juncu, ROSEdu

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The way we look at education is constantly changing. The traditional models are being influenced by new ideas and new technologies. The open source approach goes beyond software development and can bring its values to the way the new generation shares knowledge. Alex will present what are the lessons learned from the open source model that can be applied in the world of public education. The talk wants to show how open education and peer-to-peer knowledge sharing can train people for future careers better than the current school and teacher oriented one. See how a wiki and mailing list community shares information that you would find studying nights alone with a stack of books in front and how professional trust is built among people that do what they like and not what are forced to do. And see how you can bring this to your school to provide quality education to the people next to you.
