Josie Fraser is a UK-based Social and Educational Technologist, currently working for Leicester City Council as ICT Strategy Lead (Children's Capital). She leads on ICT for the City's multi-million pound Building Schools for the Future programme, designed to raise learner engagement, achievement and aspiration, and deliver inspiring and effective community centred learning environments.
She has worked promoting and developing the effective and innovative use of ICT and e-learning policy and practise in the UK and internationally. Working across the broad field of educational technology, she is primarily interested in digital literacy, and in how social technologies can be used to support learning and community development.
Josie is active in online community research and development, has served on several national and international advisory boards, and was awarded the title Individual Learning Technologist of the Year in September 2008 by the Association for Learning Technology “for ground-breaking work in the learning technology domain".
Patrick McAndrew is Professor of Open Education at the Institute of Educational Technology in The Open University. He has led projects in various aspects of online learning such as learning design, mobile learning, and accessibility. Current work is focused on the way a more open approach to learning impacts across education and on learner behaviour. Research work (http://oerresearchhub.org) is identifying whether we can attach evidence to many of the ideas that people hold about Open Educational Resources and free routes to online learning. Patrick is also an affiliate of Creative Commons UK, representing education. CCUK works as part of Creative Commons to help promote the use of open licences in the UK and to feedback to Creative Commons on the UK and European perspective. Creative Commons licences provide an important mechanism for sharing content and illustrates one way in which standardizing ways to share and describe can have benefits. The Power of Open http://thepowerofopen.org/ provides examples of using Creative Commons. In this presentation Patrick expects to talk about the direction of open education, the influence of Massive Open Online Courses, finding evidence for what works and how to take the steps to what is an exciting future for more open ways of working and learning.
