'm excited to be hosting two Simple K12 webinars in October featuring one of my more popular interactive resources, Great Ways to Use Google Drive. Both of the webinars will explore resources on the interactive image you see here, but since there is so much content to cover in 30 minutes, we've divided the learning into two separate webinars, with different focuses.

Connected Learning looks at digital technology and how we can use it to aide our learners. The image above shows their learning principles and design principles. There are three of each.

Learning Principles:

* Interest Powered

* Academically Oriented

Design Principles:

* Production-Centered

* Openly  Networked

* Shared Purpose

Connected Learning provides opportunities for students "to experience learning that is social, participatory, interest-driven and relevant to the opportunities of our time."

You will find additional information on the Learning and Design Principles as well as a short video in the post.
