How can we use Connected Learning principles to promote 21st century learning?

How can we use Connected Learning principles to promote 21st century learning? | Educational Leadership and Technology | Scoop.it
Kids are learning everywhere. Today, the traditional school forms a single, albeit important, node in a larger learning environment. The model of Connected Learning acknowledges this shift in where students learn, how they learn, who they learn from, and how they express that learning.

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

The one resource suggests teachers are involved in a journey to rethink, reiterate, and assess what is happening in their classrooms. Another key point is the "traditional School" remains a central node in the journey. The two points work together. Without rethinking the role School plays, we continue to run into barriers. Connected learning is a faddish cliche. Rethinking school continuously and what that means means connected learning, with and without digital technologies, serves an important function in teaching and learning.

Here is a great five-minute video by Diana Rhoten about how we can use new media in our classrooms to connect our learners with their passions in a way that will engage them and motivate them to keep learning beyond what we tell them to do.

The Power of a Networked Teacher Illustrated

The Power of a Networked Teacher Illustrated | Educational Leadership and Technology | Scoop.it
A wonderful visual depiction of how educators can tap into their networks to expand and continually improve their teaching practice from a trove of rich resources. Illustrated by Langwitches, the image refers to Alec Couros’s original post exploring question, “What does the network mean to you?”

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

Are we expected to do it all? It is interesting that Ivan Illich, in Deschooling Society, proposed learning networks. Could he have imagined this type of proposal?

Great visual of how networks are created to support how best to utilize them in education.

Depicts exactly what I am exploring at the moment as part of my #H812 studies and MA in Online and Disctance Education.  Chosen however not to 'network' Facebook as I tend to use it socially rather than professionally.
