I was unable to update my blog as much as I wanted to while creating my final design project. However, I can sum it all up really quickly, and let everyone know how it went! First of all, wow! This was a lot of work. Originally, I thought that I was just going to be able to create my design challenge assignment sheet, do the … Continue reading Wrapping Up My CL Badge
Ok, so I think it is about time for me to update again on what I have been working on. As with my UGP, I would like to keep documentation on my process for the final project (which in this case is a design project) for my connected learning badge. A couple of days ago when I began to start brainstorming ideas for my final … Continue reading Design Project Process
I cannot thank Cindy enough for allowing us to meet so many times with experts in the field of education! Throughout the course of this badge, I had to opportunity to sit down with Antero Garcia again to pick his brain. Only this time, we picked his brain about connected learning. We had just begun working in the realm of connected learning, so we did … Continue reading Meeting With Antero! AGAIN!!!!
For my connected learning badge, I was asked to interview one of the co-authors of the book, Teaching in the Connected Learning Classroom. To make the process a little bit easier on the author, a group of my classmates and I teamed up to come up with who we wanted to question. We all seemed to have the same great interest in everything that Nicole … Continue reading Nicole Mirra Is The Guest Star!
As I continue to dig further into connected learning, I thought that I would share some of my findings. The first finding that I absolutely think that I will incorporate into my classroom is animated haiku’s. I have been thinking about doing my design project around having students write a poem and make a comic book/strip about it. I know that students like graphic novels … Continue reading Digital Literacies Lesson Plans
So in class awhile back, we watched this video. This video is something that has stuck with me for a number of reasons. The first reason is that I am always so consumed in what is going wrong in my life that I have no time to think about the things that other people are (or could be) going through. I do have a lot … Continue reading Privilege Walk
For me, working towards a flow as a writer is almost forcing myself to continue to write every day. One of my goals after beginning CO301D was to write every single day on this blog. I wanted to do this even after this semester has ended. I have not written every day on this blog. However, every time that I research something that I am … Continue reading Working Towards Flow
As I was going through my morning pages for my CO301d class, I noticed that I am missing three of the blog posts! That being said, this blog post and the two after it will be make-up morning pages. I am not one to speak out in class. I am not one to raise my hand and ask a question. I am not one to … Continue reading Hear Me Roar
I was reading through a connected learning website, when one educator in particular stood out to me. Cas Holman seemed to have a lot of the same key beliefs about education as me, so I thought that I would share. The article about Holman starts with her key takeaways about connected learning. Those key takeaways are: Design learning materials for play and discovery-ideally, without instruction … Continue reading Imagination And The Classroom
For this post, I am going to focus on responding to the connected learning websites question: what would it mean to think of education as a process of guiding youths’ active participation in public life that includes civic engagement, and intellectual, social, recreational, and career-relevant pursuits? The first thing that I thought about after reading this question was: what can I as an educator do … Continue reading Connected Learning
