Well, because the “Crossing the Chasm” theme for this year’s Open Education Conference was a bit too hippie for my liking (especially the image), I decided to offer up an alternative theme/movie trailer for this event based on Roberto Rossellini’s masterpiece Rome, Open City, appropriately re-titled Vancouver, OpenEd City. I kinda think of this little ditty as a neo-neo-realist take on the struggle for open education.
And if you haven’t heard already, WFMU’s Station Manager Ken Freedman will be one of the three keynotes at this year’s event, a treat in and of itself. I have a feeling this year’s event might have a bit different tenor given the organizers, I imagine something along the lines of the above video. So kudos to Brian, David, Scott and Chris for putting together what promises to be an awesome event, and even making it far cheaper than it was just two years ago. How did you manage that? So, if you don’t go to the Open Education Conference this year, well, then, I guess you really don’t love freedom 🙂
