The Open Educator as DJ - Towards an Actual Practice of Educational Remix

record_opening_START.jpgThe metaphor of "Teacher as DJ" isn't new - as Wiley noted (, ever since the phrase "Rip, Mix, Burn" entered the popular consciousness via Apple's advertising campaign, it began to be applied to how educators might approach digital educational resources.

But with the ever increasing number of quality free open educational resources, the advent of 'mashups' as a widespread model of innovation both artistic and commerical, as well as the new breeds of online media tools and alternative interfaces, the "Educator as DJ" is fast moving from high level metaphor to practical art. This presentation will dig deeper into this metaphor and demonstrate live what the actual practice of the open educator as DJ might look like. So get ready to dance!
