Commonwealth of Learning

Last Friday afternoon, OLPC talked with Wayne Mackintosh of the Commonwealth of Learning, an organization committed to the development (and sharing of) materials for open education and exchange. Wayne pointed out some of the work he's done on the Learning4Content project, including a series of tutorials for teachers about the importance (and value) of developing free educational content.

Just like us and our Game Jam model, the COL has already implemented 1-to-3 day WikiEducator training workshops and longer content-creation "boot camps." Also just like us, they're writing up documentation on how anyone can organize a training near them. We're already talking about how we can connect our Jams to their training. Do you have any ideas?
