Joel Malley @joelmalley and Jennifer Woollven @mswoollven join us on this episode of TTT, the first of a series of episodes this Spring where we'll be discussing Connected Learning and our OLE (Online Learning Experience) sponsored by the National Writing Project http://connect.nwp.org/online-learning-connected-learning. (Anybody can join the OLE. Just email Joel.)
Here's how Joel and Jennifer welcome us on the Connected Learning Inquiry Group site:
Welcome to the Connected Learning Study Group!
We are gathered here to explore the framework of connected learning. We will explore the connected learning framework, seek real world examples of the principles in action and ultimately explore how we might transform our own classrooms to make student learning increasingly connected in a way that best fits our own curriculum and student needs.
And here's the plan:
- Session 1 – Connected Learning Core Values, Feb 6-Feb 20
- Session 2 – Why School?, Feb 21-March 6
- Session 3 – Connected Learning is Interest-Powered, March 7-March 20
- Session 4 – Connected Learning is Peer Supported, March 21-April 3
- Session 5 – Connected Learning is Academically Oriented, April 3-April 17
- Session 6 – Connected Learning is Production Centered, April 18-May 1
- Session 7 – Connected Learning is Openly Networked, May 2-May 15
- Session 8 – Connected Learning has Shared Purpose, May 16-29
We invite you to join these conversations at the Connected Learning Inquiry Group and here on Teachers Teaching Teachers over the next several weeks.
