1.  Open Learning Model using Wikis. 
2. Education 2.0 How has Web 2.0 changed education? or NOT!
  • Universal access, affordability, reusability and accreditation have been some of issues we face today in Education. Wonders of technology has taken us
    to a new level of understanding and literacy.

    Using technology has not only increased the learning curve and amount of knowledge assimilation, it opens up horizones for further innovation. This sessionw will explore:
    Definition of Open Learning
  • How Wikis can be used to make learning more open and accessible
  • Convergence of Hierarchy and Anarchy in literacy
  • Benefits of using Wikis for Open Learning and self-paced education.
  • Overview of contemporary moves in this direction.
After session participants can expect to know more about affordances we can have through wikifying our knowledge resources.
Participants should be able to define open learning, relate it to universal education and understanding its potential.
With the advent of the internet in the 90's and the development of Web2.0, 
how is education adapting / incorporating these changes? Our basic premis is that education has been slow to changes. 
Join us and give us your thoughts. Bilingual Session English / Spanish Webcast Radio Web 2.0

Sorry about cell alignment on our schedule page, don't waste your time trying to fix it. Normal HTML code doesn't vertically align text in these cells. We've written PBWiki/works about it. Their response is indicated in the first comment here http://wiaoc09.pbworks.com/schedule. The outcome is not ideal, but functional we hope.
