Reimagining Learning and Teaching: Personal Stories of Connected Learning
This collection of seven personal stories showcases individuals who are reimagining the role of educator as learner and developing new methodologies for teaching students in the digital age. These educators and life-long learners employ a range of approaches; one teacher refers to her methods as “gelatinous pedagogy,” while others relinquish their positions of authority to foster a culture of mutual learning between students and teachers. Each personal story focuses on the different creative approaches educators are using to transform traditional curriculum and support Connected Learning, which leverages the advances of the digital age to pave the way for more customized, student-centered learning. It is characterized by learning that is social, participatory, interest-driven, and relevant to the opportunities of our time.
These personal stories were originally featured on Connected Learning TV with support from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation. Connected Learning TV now airs on the National Writing Project's Educator Innovator.
