School of Open opens

School of Open Project Showcase from Creative Commons on Vimeo.

As teacher librarians, we need to be aware of major shifts in the intellectual property arena.

We need to be experts on the exciting developments in the culture of openness. 

And we need to prepare classroom teachers and digital age learners for similar understandings of how they can now create and how they can now contribute.

Among the major events during this past Open Education Week, was Creative Commons’ Announcement of the opening of the School of Open, an initiative devoted to sharing the benefits of openness to creativity and education.

The project, a collaboration with Peer to Peer University (P2PU), offers a variety of both facilitated and stand-alone free online classes.

You may register for classes that begin on Monday, by clicking the start course button by tomorrow, Sunday, March 17:

So much of this is so usable with middle and high school learners.

And, it is certainly not too late to explore the rich, archived, liberally licensed content of Open Education Week.
