Readers of Open Matters may be interested in OpenEdJam. The conference is in San Antonio on July 25th-27th. Here is how they describe themselves:
OpenEdJam is a 3-day international event that brings together activists, developers, educators, engineers, librarians, and makers from all fields. We will provide a hands-on environment where participants can collaborate on innovative creations and uses of free and open education resources.
Considering the cultural, ethical and technical implications of free and open education resources, we’ll come together to discuss, demonstrate and support the future of free and open education.
There will be workshops and demonstrations on software, hardware, and curriculum, all related to open education. On Days 2 and 3, there will be a hackathon to develop new open education resources. This sounds like a fun one. Visit their website to learn more or submit a proposal by April 1st.
