A NOTE ABOUT ALL ONE COMMUNITY LESSON PLANS

The One Community lesson plans are intentionally designed for use in ANY educational environment and with ALL educational, cultural, religious/spiritual, and philosophical approaches to teaching and learning. They are designed without an ideological approach and specifically so they can be adapted to include the views, preferences, methodologies, and/or ideologies preferred by different parents and teachers.

For maximum flexibility and adaptation, they are also designed to be combined to teach multiple subjects at the same time. Doing this increases the creativity, effectiveness, and fun of your learning environment. Once we are on the property and operating our version of the complete school and Education for Life program, we will be adding video examples of how to combine the lessons. In the meantime, visit the Teaching Strategies page for a list of suggestions.

TEACHING TECHNOLOGY & INNOVATION WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF OPEN SOURCE

 Teaching technology in the context of open source sharing, Technology Classes, One Community Technology

  • Learn how to share and/or forward a photo* on a computer or another piece of technology.
  • With your parent’s approval and guidance, set up a sharing account (email, dropbox, social media, etc) that you feel will be beneficial to help you share things that you create or are important to you and start using it. Explain* why you chose the one you did and your experience with using it.
  • Use the Khan Academy code writing platform and incorporate it into a presentation* that explains how the platform is and/or is not open source.
  • Create a publicly available open source addition to any open source software platform.
  • Study the top 20 open source technological projects/creations and write a multimedia presentation* about how they have changed the world and how open source contributed to that.
  • Using Open Source Ecology as a model, create a strategy to open source an industry and find a way to implement and open source the strategy, and/or present the strategy to at least one organization that could implement it.
  • Create and launch an open source makers space and run it. Interview the people that used it and report on the results and make any adjustments needed to continue its improvement.
 Teaching innovation in the context of open source sharing, Innovation Classes, One Community Innovation

  • Using a box, a piece of yarn or string, a pen, and up to 5 other items of your choice, invent a new way of sharing.
  • Create something and pass it on to 5 additional people in series, having them add on to the creation. Each time you pass it to someone, collaborate with the person you pass it on to to discuss what changes you want them to make to it and when they are finished with the modifications, pass it on to another person and give them instructions.
  • Combine 5 or more different apps and/or technologies (audio, video, picture, media sharing etc) to create and creatively share something in a new way.
  • Invent something that you see as a way to improve the life of people around you and open source it to your friends/family/school/community and encourage at least 15 other people to contribute their ideas to evolve the model. Report* on the evolutionary process and the results.
  • Combine 25 or more different apps and/or technologies (audio, video, picture, links, etc) to create and creatively share something in a new way with one person so that they experience a technological Rube Goldberg and an open source tutorial so others can duplicate your results.
  • Take 2 unrelated industries and come up with a way that they could each produce something open source within their industry that when combined with the other industry’s creation would create an open source end result of great value.  (Share with industries if possible.)
  • Building off the concept in indigo, create an open source creation tool/platform*- an app or something similar that allows people to input their ideas, allows people to modify them, and keeps track of the progress and differences along the way in an interesting and engaging way.

TEACHING VALUES WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF OPEN SOURCE

 Teaching values in the context of open source sharing, Values Classes, One Community
  • Explore sharing. First talk about what your favorite thing to share is and why. Then, name something that you have not liked to share as much, and over the next couple of days, share it with someone else and talk about what the experience was like.
  • Come up with a new idea that you think is cool and write it down so you can reference it later. Play ‘telephone’ with the idea by sharing it verbally (do not share the written version) with one person and have them write it down, adding to or modifying it any or no way they choose. Next, have them share it with another person. Repeat this at least 10-20 times and share what your end result idea is with everyone in the group.
  • Learn about sharing economies and come up with a way to implement one at a small scale, with your friends, relatives, community, and/or classmates.
  • Ask 10 people to identify what they feel are the top 10 values that support open source sharing. Find a collaborative way to create a visual, audio, or multimedia representation* of the results by asking those people to each create/contribute something that gets added to the final product, thus making the final product an open source collaboration.
  • Evaluate existing pay-it-forward organizations and/or sharing economies and create a way to increase participation* in one or more of them that you would like to support, then report your results.
  • Develop something that when shared would inspire and grow a multiplying pay-it-forward affect. Identify a way to evaluate and/or measure how quickly it is spreading and make any necessary adjustments to help it spread faster.
  • Create and launch a mini gift economy and run it. Interview the people that used it and received from it and report on the results.
