https://medium.com/@atarkowski/politics-of-open-my-thoughts-for-the-oer17-conference-bd03d716cc8e "the time seems ripe to fundamentally redefine open education and once and for all decide that it cannot just equal open educational resources ... the 10th anniversary of the Cape Town Declaration creates a perfect opportunity to make this clear" ... props to @clintlalonde for rooting our mission statement in that Declaration https://edtech.bccampus.ca/bc-open-educational-technology-collaborative/

Of people who need to have a critical political sense. Of people who simply read something and believe in it. We need to know what we’re reading ... The student movement has brought us much more knowledge about politics and citizenship than in all the time we have sat in rows of desks in standardized classrooms. One week of occupations has brought us much more knowledge about politics and citizenship than in the many years of study in the classroom."

"I’d argue that when we’re determining that subjects like computer science should be compulsory we should also consider social science as a way of helping citizens navigate the changes inevitable in creating their new status quo." https://medium.com/learning-re-imagined/what-can-education-learn-from-brexit-and-trump-edcc2aaa223e#.eofbkyqdi
