We set up camp at MozillaFEST (at Ravensbourne Art College) and convene meetings with attendees to introduce reSync workshop series.


One of our workshops will take place during/at the Mozfest. Meeting up with the Flossmanuals people, joining the School of Open (Creative Commons & P2PU) and  the Open Knowledge Foundation for a fun evening to connect with peers in the open education space. Mick Fuzz writes: “So many efforts exist to “open” up  education around the world. How can we help connect these efforts? We’d  like to start by collaboratively building a human timeline of open education — Do you remember when and where you first became aware of open education?  When did you first become passionate about “open” or  participate in an “open” event or job? Where and what was it? What else in this area has most inspired you? We will share experiences and manually place ourselves along a real world  timeline (think rolls of butcher paper, markers, glitter is optional). Then we’ll start fleshing out  the timeline with key events and persons that we think brought the open education and knowledge movement to where it is today. We’ll stop whenever we get tired, make merry with refreshments and snacks, and  digitize whatever we have by the end of the evening for further contributions from everyone and anyone on the web. We’ll make the resulting timeline available openly (either via CC0, CC BY, or CC  BY-SA), and feature it in a chapter of the Open Education Handbook!

Organizer descriptions: (for School of Open, Creative Commons, P2PU, Open Knowledge Foundation and FLOSS Manuals Foundation)
The School of Open  is a community of volunteers focused on providing free education  opportunities on the meaning, application, and impact of “openness” in  the digital age and its benefit to creative endeavors, education,  research, and more. Volunteers develop and run online courses, real  world workshops, and training programs on topics such as Creative  Commons licenses, open educational resources, and sharing creative  works. 
The School of Open is coordinated by Creative Commons, a  globally focused nonprofit dedicated to making it easier for people to  share and build upon the work of others, consistent with the rules of  copyright, and P2PU, an active peer learning platform and community for developing and running free online courses.
The Open Knowledge Foundation  (OKF) is a non-profit organisation founded in 2004 and dedicated to  promoting open data and open content in all their forms – including  government data, publicly funded research and public domain cultural  content.

The FLOSS Manuals Foundation is a collection of different language communities that produce educational materials about Free Software using innovative collaborative tools and processes.”
