Chapter 2 -- Developing a Connected Learning Model
In chapter 2 the authors define and discuss the three prongs of connected learning communities: professional learning communities, personal learning networks, and communities of practice. They also talked about how important it is to have a diverse network. Do you have diversity in your network? How important do you think it is to have a diverse network? Share your thoughts and suggestions on how to build a diverse network. Be sure to listen to, and maybe even comment to, the VoiceThread that is introduced at the end of the chapter. There is a great conversation going on there about how we can be effective teachers of today's learners.
