Sustainable, responsible, conscious, eco travel ought to be at the center of a worldwide revolution. But to be effective, we need to learn how to make the most of the movement toward open education and open access.
Open Education Week – https://www.openeducationweek.org – takes place this week, March 27-31, and this is the ideal time for Planeta.com to conduct a simple inventory focusing on conservation and travel. And while inventories are helpful, but slow to compile, let’s make this a game.
In 2017 we are gamifying Open Education Week. Here are the rules
- Play by answering our questions, by commenting, responding to a tweet, adding a heart to a periscope or posting your questions. Hashtag: #openeducationwk
- Bonus points for specific examples of open education in action. OER is a fine philosophy, but what’s it like in practice?
- Bonus points for applying OER to grade schools. What resources are available to teachers? What is the role of the student in 2017? Again, how does OER apply?
- Double bonus points for responses before April 1.
1. Are there examples of open education resources in conservation, parks and protected areas?
- Magazines, journals?
- Open access?
2. Are there examples of open education resources in travel and tourism?
- Magazines, journals
- Open access?
4. What are the commonalities and differences shared by what’s open – open data, open education, open journalism.
5. Do colleagues understand licensing and Creative Commons?
You can contribute to the week by sharing information about specific Open Education projects, hosting a local event, promoting the week to your friends or by joining programs underway. There are plenty of events taking place.
