Skype with Clarence
Isn’t Clarence cool?
In regards of understanding Personal Learning Networks these were my notes that sparked my thinking–do they spark yours?
- Hooking kids up with other kids both locally (in the classroom) and globally (links to Africa)
- Giving students a platform for sharing thinking, presenting, which invites an audience and validates student work
- Leaving topic lists open to engage students at their interest level (motivation)–AIDS and hope in Africa
- Allowing students to connect themselves in and feel that they are significant contributors in today’s world (self-to-others)
My BIG take away:
Reminds me that motivation is probably the biggest key to meaningful connected learning.
What about you?
