Title: The role, value, and limits of S&T data and information in the public domain for education
Author(s): Bruce, Bertram C.
Subject(s): Public domain Scientific and technical information Education Open access Biology Workbench
Abstract: I want to focus on education today, which I define broadly to include learning inK-12 schools and universities, informal learning, as well as learning in the workplace. I want to make an argument that attention to the role of the public domain in education is not only important for education, but also can give us a better understanding of what the public domain means and how to think about it in a larger society. I am going to group my comments into four areas. The first is to lay out a context for thinking about education and its relation to information today. The second is to describe Biology Workbench, a tool that has been used increasingly in K-12 and college education. Third is a classroom example to show some of the kinds of things that students are doing with this tool. Finally, I’ll talk about some of the implications.
