And then there was Edupunk

I’ve just been catching up on my regular blogs today and Edupunk is everywhere. I’m not sure how long this craze will last, or if it’s already soo last week in the blog/twittersphere. But in the light of some of the discussions we had at the EC SIG meeting last week around open content, personal learning environments etc many of the issues raised through the edupunk debate are becoming more and more relevant to us in HE. Particularly if we really want harness the power oftechnology to allow staff and students to share and re-use content. Community engagement is key, as Jim Groom points out ” . . . the idea of a community and its culture is what makes any technology meaningful and relevant.”

Tony Hirst has a good summary of the debate and it’s worth having a look at Martin Weller’s response.
