Open Ed Resource for EdTech Playground

open-heroOver the weekend I was thinking about what it takes to start, manage, and run an ed tech playground in higher education. After doing an online search for open education resources for ed tech playgrounds I found nothing of value. I played around with the words to see if any valuable resources would come up and nothing. After talking with my fellow colleague Scott Haselwood I said, “there should be an open ed resource for people who want to start and run an ed tech playground.” Scott gave me a look of confidence and told me to lead the charge. The idea of the open ed resource would be to describe how to start, develop, and manage an ed tech playground in higher education.

The resource can also expand into k-12 institutions along with community organizations and corporations. Developing and writing the resource would take time along with financial resources to publish such a document. Ideally the book would also include examples of other ed tech playground across the country on how they started and manage there ed tech playground. Sharing experiences in the resource can help other institutions of learning know what works best for there environment.

The idea is written on the glass board in the OSU Ed Tech Playground (Willard 326). If anyone has information they want to provide, contribute, or know of resources that could help with the project tweet @coetechplay
