Open Ed and Microblogging...Tweet Tweet

Unit Structures Using Twitter as Course Management

Just the idea that we can have open discussions inviting feedback from everyone is great selling point for me. Think of the great discussions your class has that could be beneficial to other teachers or classes in your building much less the world. The more we protect the more we inhibit in my opinion, we must open the doors of education and information to anyone who wants it. I love the open culture idea, but there are a lot of fears that some people will have to get past before we can use this. I think that once we begin to share and open those closed course discussions authentic learning will spread like wild fire. I've been asking this question a lot lately, but why do we all have to have the same conversations behind closed doors sharing spilling out only drops of the value onto the web and culture? Open it up let's discuss and learn with and from each other, there's some brilliance being blocked behind antiquated models of learning.
