Show Notes

In contemporary journalism, if a news story is described as “having legs” it means it has the ability to evolve and remain relevant over a long period of time to a wide community. This concept of “having legs” can also be applied to the creation of OER as there is an embedded assumption by the creator of a work that, by assigning an open license to it, their work will become flexible enough to develop “legs” and continue to be successful on its own through adaptation and adoption by others. On this panel from April 21st we talk about the “legs” on #25YearsOfEdTech lessons learned and things to consider for OEP work. Apologies for the extra sounds, we forgot to turn off the Discord notifications so you will hear people coming and going from our channel. Enjoy!

What is 25 Years of Ed Tech?

25 Years of Ed Tech is a serialized audio version of the book 25 Years of Ed Tech, written by Martin Weller of the Open University and published by AU Press. The audio version of the book is a collaborative project with a global community of volunteers contributing their voices to narrate a chapter of the book. Bonus episodes are a series of conversations called "Between the Chapters" to chat about these topics and more!

"In this lively and approachable volume based on his popular blog series, Martin Weller demonstrates a rich history of innovation and effective implementation of ed tech across higher education. From Bulletin Board Systems to blockchain, Weller follows the trajectory of education by focusing each chapter on a technology, theory, or concept that has influenced each year since 1994. Calling for both caution and enthusiasm, Weller advocates for a critical and research-based approach to new technologies, particularly in light of disinformation, the impact of social media on politics, and data surveillance trends. A concise and necessary retrospective, this book will be valuable to educators, ed tech practitioners, and higher education administrators, as well as students."
