E-learning in 'open source' education

"The open source idea is very successful in software development where there is a peer–production process of community–owned 'open source' software. The potential of this approach for education has been indicated (Staring et al, 2005; Dillon & Bacon, 2006) and this study is a qualitative review of education initiatives that embody this approach, leading to a focus group asking what can be learnt from these ideas.

Radical pedagogy is a broad term related to alternative educational approaches including critical pedagogy and popular education, and educational concepts like collaborative and constructivist learning. History and influences range through Foucault, socialism, Freire, de–schooling and anarchism to traveller culture. Major themes are non–alignment, critique of power, non–hierarchical self–organisation, political activism and critical consciousness (Smith 1996; Wright 1989 and others).

The research is evaluating the open source approach as a significant concept in education thinking and identifying pedagogical and e–learning ideas or techniques from such approaches that can be valuable for teaching and learning."
