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

How can we use Connected Learning principles to promote 21st century learning? | iGeneration - 21st Century Education | 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 curator insight, July 12, 10:32 AM

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.

Danielle Leibowitz's curator insight, November 6, 2013 9:15 PM

This article was an exciting find because I had recently read about virtual field trips and now I got to see what they are like! This is honestly the coolest thing, and the imagery is so clear I almost feel like I'm there. I can see this being an incredible tool in the classroom to expose students what exists beyond their school walls without having to go through the hastle of planning a trip and causing students to miss other classes. The experts in the video also seemed to enjoy doing the virtual trips, so it seems like a win, win. I think that any content area teacher could use this to enhance their lessons, and I think that students would really enjoy it as well. So neat!

Nick Berry's curator insight, March 4, 8:41 PM

As you can see, this method of using Google + provides students with a chance that is as close as possible to a real school excursion. This entire Connected Classrooms experience can be viewed live or played back to classes around the globe.

 

Whilst watching these recordings and live broadcasts, students could be instructed to collect data/information  and later represent this data through electronic means - fulfilling one of the Year 3 and 4 Technology Content Descriptors.

 

"Collect, access and present different types of data using simple software to create information and solve problems."  (ACTDIP009)
