Jimmy Wales and Rich Baraniuk want to infect you with “the dream that anyone can become part of a new movement with the potential to change the world of education: A movement that can redefine forever how knowledge is created and used. . . . Late last year in Cape Town, we joined delegates from around the world as we reached a consensus on both the ideals and approaches to Open Education and committed them in the Cape Town Open Education Declaration, which was released officially today. Everyone has something to teach. Everyone has something to learn. Together, we can all help transform the way the world develops, disseminates and uses knowledge. Together, we can help make the dream of Open Education a reality.” <a href="http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2008/01/22/EDRTUJ346.DTL">Here is the article</a> that contains a link to the declaration.
