All CCWP Fellows, prospective Fellows, and any interested teachers or community members are welcome to attend Fred’s biweekly Drop-In group about Connected Learning, held with generous support from Arts Council Santa Cruz County at their offices. Here’s the flyer with the schedule through January, 2015:
The first stop for Writing Project folks who are interested in the NWP Connected Learning Community should be the sign-up page:
The National Writing Project’s Connected Learning Initiative focuses around a Google Plus page, where most participants are sharing about their work. The most important part of signing up for the G+ page is to turn on “Notifications,” so that you get email alerts when folks are posting.
There is also a Facebook group, which also has a number of posts, if Facebook is more to your liking.
The National Writing Project also sponsors the closely connected Educator Innovator site,
which hosts a wonderful repository of many of the activities created by educators during the ongoing Connected Learning Collaboration:
The Mozilla Foundation, which is sponsoring the summer-long Maker Party to teach how to code for the web
Mozilla will be continuing their support for educational coding during the coming school year. Check the link above for updates. Other resources:
The Digital Media Lab’s Connected Learning Research Hub
The Connected Educators page, an initiative of the Office of Educational Technology at the U.S. Department of Education conducted by the American Institutes for Research
