Lights on Afterschool: Bringing Together Educators, Schools and Communities
We know that when the school bell rings, kids take off in all different directions....
Learning Creative Learning: It’s not (just) a course, but a community for educators, designers, technologists, and others interested in creative learning.
Learning Creative Learning 2 (LCL2) is an online community that focuses on creative learning, hosted by the MIT Media Lab. LCL2 will start on March 18, 2014 with six weeks of discussions and activities, followed by a few weeks to work on projects, leading to a creative-learning exhibition in May. There will be online sessions on Tuesdays from 1:00-2:00 p.m. EDT.
LCL2 will focus on key aspects of the Media Lab approach to learning: Projects, Peers, Passion, and Play. We invite you to apply these ideas to your own teaching and learning experiences. Together, we can reimagine and reinvent education.
Learning Creative Learning 2 is a collaborative experiment. We are building on the online course we offered last year and plan to continue to tinker with the format and explore new tools for sharing ideas and supporting discussions. We hope you will tinker with us.
Online learning + Local meet-ups = 🙂 We think local meet-ups are the perfect complement to online learning. That’s why LCL2 is collaborating with EdCamps and NWP to encourage more meet-ups. They create an opportunity to meet others in your area who are just as passionate about creative learning as you are!
LCL2 will encourage participants to contact local Writing Project sites who might be interested in hosting a meet-up. In these sessions, participants could talk about the readings and ideas of the course, or even work on course activities together, but we encourage you to do it face-to-face instead of online only.
Join LCL2 > No sign-up necessary but we will send updates and weekly reminders to an email list. To get updates, register your email address at http://learn.media.mit.edu and follow @medialabcourse on Twitter.
