How I feel about arguments over definitions of “open”
It's about open attitudes (Nancy White)
"Openness facilitates the unexpected" David Wiley
"...Although we can connect and interact within both physical spaces and bounded online spaces, we cannot easily share what we are doing with a wider audience, nor can we invite our networks into our learning community. The message remains: what we do here is separate from all else we do. Formal learning is divorced from rather than integrated with informal learning practices and networks."
