Interest groups don't run themselves. Someone needs to shepherd both the participants and the information. Unfortunately, this kind of administration rarely appeals to expert practitioners (e.g. teachers, administrators, programmers, designers). If you are a good organizer, have social media skills and are interested in furthering the reimagining and practical implementation of education in schools, communities, homes, and for independent learners, check out this volunteer position. Currently we have captured a few ideas on a website but lots more work needs to be done. Take a look and join us if you are interested at www.openportal.network and openportal4learning.mn.co

Information Shepherds will:

  • read posts on OpenPortal4Learning

  • actively notify other participants when there is a post they will be interested in

  • encourages people to post on the correct topic

  • recategorizes or cross-posts under appropriate topics

  • remove any inappropriate or offensive posts

  • write summaries of OP4L discussions and topic and post these as blogs on Openportal.network

Mission Statement

Our mission is to empower people to meet the opportunities and challenges posed by cultural diversity and by technological change through education.

Description

Founded in 1975 by Liza Loop, Dean Brown, and Stuart Cooney, LO*OP Center has long been an educational innovator, introducing thousands of children and adults to their first experiences with computing. LO*OP brought the first Apple Computer into a school in 1976, brought Soviet and American teenagers together as citizen diplomats in 1985, taught educational technology to senior Malaysian educators in 1987, developed new English as a Second Language (ESL) evaluation methods for US industry in 1990 and founded the Intercultural Resources Forum in 1991. In the ’90, LO*OP continued its work in Russia through the interactive museum program, Touch Science -Russia, and explored new applications of cognitive science to non-formal learning environments.

After a quiet period during the last decade, LO*OP is now embarked on building a virtual (online) museum featuring the History of Computing in Learning and Education (HCLE.org).

HCLE covers the pre-web decades 1960-1990 when the development and popularization of microcomputers opened new opportunities in formal and non-formal learning. HCLE preserves, presents and interprets artifacts, documents, images and software from this era to the public so that the lessons learned during this formative period are not lost to future generations.
