How Open Education Can Change the World (Reprise)
Apr 26, 2018. Keynote, Educacion y Technologia en y Para La Diversidad, Medellin, Colombia, . I define and explore the application of open education and open educational resources (OER) to peace, reconciliation and development in Colombia. I describe how new technologies have made possible new ways of learning, and how we can work together as a community to teach ourselves, thus allowing each person the voice and opportunity to play a meaningful role in society. This is a more polished version of the talk given in Rionegro.

Jan 24, 2018. Keynote, EIDOS64, Bayonne, France, Le département des Pyrénées atlantiques . What are the factors that motivate innovation in educational technology, and what is the outcome that results from those factors. In this talk Stephen Downes addresses the set of commonly understood ‘drivers’, ranging from factors ranging from demographic change to economic restraint to technology development. In addition, he also examines the ‘attractors’ for innovation, defining these as the factors that define what we want to accomplish through education, factors that range from personal self-improvement to workplace training to social and cultural development. From the perspective of these factors we can comprehend not only the recent history of educational technology, but also gain perspectives on the future as well. We can also comment on what we want, need and value in an education system, and thus frame the decisions that we will need to take in the short term in order to prepare for the long term.

Oct 12, 2017. Lecture, YouTube Video Presentation, Ottawa, Ontario, . Despite what the first slide says, this was created and uploaded October 24, 2017. In this video I describe my 'Semantic Condition' diagram that I created ten years ago and I go through the process of creating a nice neat cleaned up version of the diagram. This diagram basically slides the four essential principles for the creation of meaning, truth and value in networks, specifically, autonomy, diversity, openness and interactivity. There's a lot left unsaid; I'm just describing the concept here, not defending it, and I am offering only surface-level views of the four principles, not a deep examination. But I hope people will find it useful, as it is a key part of my own framework for knowledge, learning and discovery.
