This week we continue to work on our final makes. We will share them, even if they are still works-in-progress, on Thursday or Friday nights. Please make sure you all sign up for one of these evening gatherings or email me so that we can discuss an alternative plan.

Nice work on our Equity in Connected Learning presentation! I made a copy that we can share publicly without our comments. Here is a short URL:

Here are some ideas/suggestions about how to do that.

  • Share a link on your blog post this week as part of your blog/reflection (see below).
  • Post it on social media. If you want to try to tweet, here is an example of a tweet you can experiment with (feel free to edit of course).

    We have been seeking #equity in #connectedlearning. Here’s what we have been finding: @arcadiasoe #techquity #ED677

  • One of us should post it to the Arcadia Connected Learning Google Community.

BTW, Happening this week:

  • Throughout the week, there is an “annotathon” based on a chapter of a book we’ve looked at called By Any Media Necessary. The chapter is titled “Storytelling and Surveillance: The Precarious Public of American Muslim Youth” and there is a webinar Tuesday evening related to this you could also tap into. Find out more about this opportunity.
  • Check out the various blog posts about the work of LRNG Innovators. On May 1st we will announce the awards for the 2017 LRNG Innovators Challenge. And the 2015 awardees are in the process of sharing their work as we speak.

Blogging/Making this week

After participating in one of the sharing gatherings this week, blog about that experience. What was most exciting to you? What else did you notice? What questions did it raise? What ideas did it generate and what are your take-aways in terms of equity in connected learning and teaching?

In connected solidarity,
