Hello Ed677 friends and welcome to my WordPress! My name is Kelly, and I teach secondary English. I have no previous experience with connected learning (as far as I know) and I’m still trying to form an idea of what it looks like. So far I’m gathering that it gives students creative freedom, it’s hands-on, product-centered, and revolves around relevant, interesting topics for students. I’m thinking it sounds a little too good to be true, and I’m interested to see how I can implement some of the techniques into the curriculum I currently teach. I believe wholeheartedly that if a student can find a personal or relevant connection to the material, the learning becomes much more meaningful and long lasting. As for me, I love to travel and I enjoy a good adventure (hence the name of the blog.) I’m excited to collaborate with other educators this semester and experience what connected learning is all about.
