Review

OPEN is a revelation. With an engaging wit and a clear mind Dave Price cast a penetrating light on how the new dynamics of digital culture are transforming not only how we work and play but how we think, feel and learn. He writes with a sharp sense of social history and theory. But he argues too from deep practical experience as an artist, parent and noted leader in educational change. From every perspective 'Open' will open your mind to some of the real implications of digital technologies for how we live and learn in the 21st century. --Sir Ken Robinson, world-leading expert on education and creativity

There a lots of books about learning, but there are hardly any that manage to put the coming education revolution in a context that makes sense both emotionally and economically. OPEN is a tour de force that is by turns inspiring, shocking, highly entertaining, but above all practical. David Price combines the rare skill of understanding an institution without being institutionalised - a maverick thinker who can, through force of reason and humour coupled with long experience, make the job of re-booting education a fun one. He's just the kind of revolutionary the new world needs - one who's influence comes from putting the power to change things directly into your hands. --Mark Stevenson, author of 'An Optimist's Tour of the Future'

Product Description

What makes a global corporation give away its prized intellectual property? Why are Ivy League universities allowing anyone to take their courses for free? What drives a farmer in rural Africa to share his secrets with his competitors?

A collection of hactivists, hobbyists, forum-users and maverick leaders are leading a quiet but unstoppable revolution. They are sharing everything they know, and turning knowledge into action in ways that were unimaginable even a decade ago. Driven by technology, and shaped by common values, going ‘open’ has transformed the way we live. It’s not so much a question of if our workplaces, schools and colleges go open, but when.

Packed with illustration and advice, this entertaining read by learning futurist, David Price, argues that ‘open’ is not only affecting how we are choosing to live, but that it’s going to be the difference between success and failure in the future.
