The goals for convening this session were 3-fold:
To introduce the Connected Learning Principles;
To introduce some of the simple tools; and,
After our introductions and announcements we turned it over to Christina and Meeno to lead us through some activities and discussions.
In 2 groups we started our first activity- Hack a game.
Name a childhood game; name its rules (list to have handy if folks get stuck
Run through it once
Now change up the rules: hack or remix them — each person introduce a new rule
Run through it with your new rules
Share new game with other group (5 mins each; 10 mins)
Reflect out/share what you notice about doing this; what questions are raised (about the process, about the game, about the collaboration, whatever is fine!) (5 mins)
We created the game: Song Ball and then discussed how this connects to classroom learning, curriculum design and youth engagement.
Next, we looked at these concepts in a networked and media-context (10 mins)
We discussed how these online tools could support our youth media work….
Why does this matter? Connected Learning (15 mins)
What do you notice here? What stands out? What are the implications?
Future opportunities to discuss/connect with educators across the city and online (5 mins)
Project:Connect work happening at various sites locally & nationally this summer
Connect Learning Community
We closed with additional announcements from attendees:
