The commons at the intersection of pixels and atoms As our sharing models expand from open licenses in education to open hardware and hands-on learning we are inspired to revisit and adapt different models of knowledge sharing from various communities of practice. In this talk we will explore how and why should we define the commons at the intersection of digital and physical learning and what can we learn from the past.

We love technology and want it to help in education. But the hard fact remains that many students, teachers and classrooms in the developing world lack even the most rudimentary resources, let alone some kind of computer and access to the internet. Can we start bridging the gap effectively and progressively? This session will describe an experience doing this, reviewing 4 years implementing cnbGuatemala.org, a website built on Mediawiki offering teachers the full content of the Guatemalan...

Dr. Rogelio 'Roger' Escobar, professor at the National Autonomous University of Mexico in Mexico City, leads a behavioral research lab, where he and his students use free and open source hardware, such as the Arduino and 3-D printed materials. This work provides a pathway not only to sustainable, but more transparent research practices. Dr. Escobar will provide a history of his lab's work with open source hardware and software. He will then elaborate on the advantages and unique affordances of...

            Makerspaces have helped educators to combine the learning-through-doing philosophy of teaching alongside with community based communication through the sharing of ideas and practices. Such exchanges help participants grow in knowledge and understanding and has the potential to impact not only those who make but those that use what is created. This form of learning while exciting for many is also hard for some learners to grasp as it can defer from traditional school formatting and...

Recently OpenEd and TheLearningAccelerator have published Open LearningObjectives  on Github.com for others to use and examine - and even contribute! Learn about where this exciting work is leading and see results thus far as shown on OpenEd.com's assessment to instruction interface. Standards should be open, and ASN is a step in the right direction - but more finer grained statements of learning are imperative to have the right resources for the right assessment. As open assessment concepts...

Many public schools offer digital forensics coursework. However, many of the these schools rely on proprietary solutions - which can be quite expensive. By contrast, teachers can provide a wealth of customizable and gratis tools to students utilizing software readily available in Debian and other Linux distributions. Additionally, GNU/Linux distributions such as Kali, provide students with an industry standard environment for digital forensics and network security. This workshop is intended...

The Raspberry Pi is the cheapest and most popular single-board computer available in 2016.  It is the size of a credit card and is powered by a 5-volt phone charger.  The goal of the Raspberry Pi Foundation is to "advance the education of adults and children, particularly in the field of computers, computer science and related subjects."  As technology educators to low-income families, we should all become familiar with the Raspberry Pi and show others how to use it, too.  I will introduce you...
