TCAB member Jim Hall contributed a chapter to a peer-reviewed book, The Open Organization Guide for Educators. The book launched earlier this week. 

What if we could build classrooms, departments, or entire educational institutions on the same values that power open source communities? What if we let open organization principles—like transparency, inclusivity, adaptability, collaboration, and community—guide our experiments in transforming education? How might that change the ways educators prepare students for life in an increasingly open world?

In The Open Organization Guide for Educators, more than two dozen advocates for open education explore these important questions. Students, K‒12 teachers, university faculty, campus CIOs, and leaders of educational non-profits unite to explain the power and promise of a more student-centered, participatory, and inclusive approach to 21st century teaching and learning.Hall's chapter is about the changing mode of online learning, as students increasingly shift to mobile devices.

The book is available as a free download or a paperback for purchase. Like other books in the Open Organization book series, this is Creative Commons-licensed and can be modified or adapted.
