Other Decks in Education


  1. We’d like to begin this event by acknowledging that we

    stand on Nonotuck land. We’d also like to acknowledge our neighboring Indigenous nations: the Nipmuc and the Wampanoag to the East, the Mohegan and Pequot to the South, the Mohican to the West, and the Abenaki to the North. Compiled by Bixie Eutsler AC'20 and Ian Miller AC'19 for Manuela Picq's class "Indigenous Women in World Politics" Five College Native American and Indigenous Studies
  2. When we offer more credentials in lieu of a stronger

    social contract, it is Lower Ed. When we ask for social insurance and get workforce training, it is Lower Ed. When we ask for justice and get “opportunity,” it is Lower Ed. ~Tressie McMillan Cottom
  3. What architectures power your pedagogies? Which architects get to create

    them? What hope do open approaches offer to a broken educational system? to a broken web? to a broken world?
  4. Open education comes down to one word: accountability… YOU choose

    what YOU want to learn, and how YOU want to do it, and when YOU want to do it. Noticing a theme? This is your education, and for the first time, in a very long time, maybe ever, we have a say in what we want to learn. Jaime Marsh, Keene State College I was encouraged by more than the grade. I wanted to contribute to something long-lasting, and something bigger than myself. Anna Glina, Northeastern University Student perspectives
