Open Educational Technology (OET)

How to introduce Open Educational Technology (OET) resources, open source tools and CC licenced learning objects to teacher education students and why it is important by Salvor Gissurardottir, assistant professor at School of Education, University of Iceland

Salvor says; “I will talk about my experience with using wikitools such as mediawiki and diverse wikimedia projects in teacher education and designing project based learning where students use open source graphics tools (Gimp, Paint.net and Inkscape)”

I sat in on this webinar and learned a lot. Salvor has done some really good work using free open applications and content teaching Icelandic teachers to promote project-based learning.
