Using Connected Learning to Empower Student Agency
From video chats to charity basketball games, educators are empowering youth civic engagement by connecting...
Amaze yourself and inspire others—be a part of the third summer CLMOOC focused on making learning connected.
Launched just last week (June 18, 2015), in celebration of the White House’s Week of Making, CLMOOC is a collaborative, knowledge-building and sharing experience open to anyone interested in making, playing, and learning together about the educational framework known as Connected Learning. CLMOOC provides educators of all types with an opportunity to play with new tools, make projects and friends, and share projects and reflections with colleagues across the country and around the world.
The first of six CLMOOC Make Cycles kicks off on Monday, June 22, 2015, and will be run by educator-colleagues from the Tar River and UNC Charlotte Writing Projects. At the beginning of each Make Cycle, participants who have signed up will receive a newsletter giving details about the cycle’s activities along with ample encouragement to jump on in. Visit the CLMOOC website and sign up today.
In the meantime, the team invites you to sign-up and connect to the various spaces of CLMOOC, including:
CLMOOC encourages you to make, play, lead, lurk, connect, remake, remix in whatever way your heart desires. In CLMOOC, we strongly encourage you to follow your own interests and your own passions as educators and learners, to connect with peers locally and globally, and to encourage each other around shared purposes in constructive, creative ways. In fact, it is through the acts of making, writing, connecting, and reflecting during CLMOOC that participants will be exploring these very Connected Learning principles together.
In other words, there is no one “right” way to participate in the CLMOOC. And there’s no “wrong” way, either. There is only your way.
Let the making begin!
