The 2007 Open Education Conference started today here at Utah State University in Logan, UT. There are already pictures and blog posts being posted online. Eventually the audio/video and presentation files for each presentation should be freely available on the conference website, as was done for the earlier open education conferences. So I’m not really ‘live blogging’ the event myself, but I will say Chris Hoadley gave a nice presentation this morning on taking the context and community in account when incorporating technology into instructional reform efforts. He ended with a critical analysis of the OLPC laptop project, which thus far is not taking context, community, and pedagogy into much account. If you are blogging anything related to the conference, use the tag or mention the word “opened2007” in order for the site to pick it up.
