The open repository has many objectives: knowledge diffusion but also a pedagogical proposal to teachers: the “enlarged classroom” (Sagol 2013). The enlarged classroom consists in a digital environment –a group in a social network, a folder in an intranet, a blog, for example- that complements the face to face class.
In the conference I want to point how OER are not only a tool for knowledge equality but also a didactical requirement for IT innovator uses in classrooms and schools. We can change the teaching and learning practices using digital contents and digital environments, improve the teachers as content makers and transform the time and space of classrooms.
In this propose we invite teachers to use the contents as seeds, to remix them like Djs and became authors with our resources as raw materials. The teachers publish the “remixed” open resources in the enlarged classrooms but also in professional sites and networks.
In these enlarged classrooms, the knowledge has different ways of circulation and construction (Siemens 2006) and teachers and pupils have new roles. Teachers and pupils improve their profiles and first and foremost the resources add value across the use.
