We live in an exciting time. Digital technologies are becoming increasingly ubiquitous changing the centres and peripheries of knowledge production and consumption. Today it is essential to identify new learning perspectives enriched by distributed, open and collaborative communities. This talk will explore how to overcome the resistance to change in educational organizations based on key drivers in radical openness that can reshape the current education ecosystem. The idea is to discover remarkable open knowledge initiatives (i.e. open educational resources, massive online courses), new certification systems (i.e. open badges, peer assessment), new profiles (data broker, desing thinkers or digital curators); as well as distributed research networks. This presentation compile some of these trends and aims to open a dialogue of possible scenarios for education.
