During Session 7 we will explore the concept of openly networked classrooms. The Digital Media & Learning Research Hub explains:
Connected learning environments are designed around networks that link together institutions and groups across various sectors, including popular culture, educational institutions, home, and interest communities. Learning resources, tools, and materials are abundant, accessible and visible across these settings and available through open, networked platforms and public-interest policies that protect our collective rights to circulate and access knowledge and culture. Learning is most resilient when it is linked and reinforced across settings of home, school, peer culture and community.
But what do these classrooms look like? How does this open atmosphere enhance learning? These questions and more will be explored during session seven.
