Here are seven interesting tidbits I found this week:

 

  1. Last summer, I worked for a summer camp for Julian Krinsky programs, and it was a great viewpoint into connected learning. I am sharing the general website, although my program helped talented rising 9th graders in low-income areas create a non-profit organization aimed toward social justice. I was in charge of teaching statistical models, but I also facilitated the different groups toward creating something bigger. If I had to imagine connected learning, that was it. https://www.jkcp.com/landing.php

 

2. This site seemed like a great resource for different projects and testimonials for connected learning in a classroom. I delved into it a little bit, but there’s so much here it was impossible for me to make my whole way through. https://clrn.dmlhub.net/projects

 

3. A cool TED talk on learning in the 21st century: https://ed.ted.com/on/cRzrY0U6

4. This is one of my favorite math websites, but is also pretty philosophical about education. The pictures are pretty funny, too. https://mathwithbaddrawings.com/

 

5. I want to be able to do this someday. https://www.theatlantic.com/education/archive/2014/10/what-happens-when-students-control-their-own-education/381828/

 

6. This is a story of an administrator who becomes a student for several days and writes about his 21st century experiences. I have changed some of my teaching habits based on this article, such as being more patient when I get the same question more than once. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/answer-sheet/wp/2014/10/24/teacher-spends-two-days-as-a-student-and-is-shocked-at-what-she-learned/?utm_term=.791a083cb78d

 

7. These are the types of students I’d like to create. They are similar to the kids from the website in the first thing I posted in here. Creating is more important than simply learning facts. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Yt6raj-S1M
