    BECTA Paper on 'Open Source Teaching' and the Kaleidoscope

    Likely you will have already seen reference to this paper in today's OLDaily, but I felt it was worth reposting as it is a good paper and early on makes an important distinction that I think is too often left dormant in LOR projects and leads to no end of confusion about what people are trying to achieve. </p>



    This distinction has to do with the drivers behind the use of learning objects/repositories. The paper outlines 4:</p>



    - The efficiency route: the argument that learning objects and repositories enable scaleable reuse of materials and are thus a more efficient way to develop materials

    - The teacher-centred route: sharing LOs will enable cross the board improvement of teaching materials

    - The pupil-centred route: LOs, in that they also promote the separation of content and presentation and can be traversed to present new versions, enable accessibility and learning-style-centric versions of online materials

    - The freedom argument: the LO approach allows instructors to take control of the means of production and share the intellectual product widely</p>
