What do we do with so much data?  Make sense of it, and add your own little bit!

As Steve Hargadon says:

So  think about it: the world is a much bigger place, and a much smaller one. We can connect with others anywhere in the world with Internet access. We can learn and remix the ideas of others, innovating and collaborating together. Together, we can make the world better.

One way to begin is to join a community such as Connected Learning Massive Open Online Collaboration: CLMOOC.  It's a welcoming community for anyone to drop in, see what we're doing, lurk, comment, create in ways that fit your needs and time. Click on the links below for more information.

What is Connected Learning?
What are the goals?
How do I sign up?
When is it?  Remember, you can participate in many ways, big and small, at any time.
Where is the community? [ Google Plus ]
How do I follow? #clmooc Twitter?

Connected Learning helps us make sense of all the information 
and ground it in our daily lives.
How are you making sense of the information?
What are you adding?
Will you join #clmooc and help us learn together?

Middle School Blogging Strategies

As I've been reading the process of connecting blogs and using labels/tags and categories in Laura Gibb 's SummerBlogFest2020 , I finally realized I did begin such a process with my students the year we started with Blogger blogs. Laura's Process Laura's comment reminded me of our process when she pointed me to her " Biography Assignment ." Scroll down to the blue box to see how her students created their response in their blogs-- here's a screenshot : Middle School Process In our Slice of Life writing, where students loved writing about themselves every Tuesday,  I wrote about the process and project here: Slice of Life Writing , complete with links to examples and drafts. Briefly, we followed this process-- every Tuesday, and every day in March: Draft :  A Quick Write, then a Slow Write/Revision in GDocs Review Strategies : Add the writing strategies used with examples from your work Post with title SOL+your topic/title; label:

Hope in Dark Times for a Rip in Time

Today-- I've not posted here in a while, but today a tweet from a friend and a daily doodle prompt brought some excellent strategies for these times. I hope this cross-post from my other blog brings some support for you in these times. April Doodle My  CLmooc  friends doodle every day. April’s prompts are from  Rachelle at TinkerLab  —  #tinkerlab .  Today the prompt is rip , so since we don’t write on paper anymore or napkins because we have digital devices, and, since it seems this year has been ripped, I created a “ rip in time” at 2100 hours for 2021. #AprilDoodle  #clmooc #rip   #tinkerlab   Now, it seems a rather sad thing, but my friend Joy Kirr has a way forward, especially for teachers or anyone whose work brings extra stress because of this year's complete change in our daily lives. How are the optimists doing? I reflected, wrote, and now I'm sharing: https://t.co/NsDc0IhMJS I hope this helps at least one educator. If you think it will, pleas

Childhood Objects

Puzzles Kim Douillard , a #clmooc friend, writes a fantastic photography/reflection/education blog called " Thinking Through My Lens ." Today, she wrote about Puzzles, something she doesn't usually do and to which she and her husband gravitated to as a time-filler during these covid times, which she addresses as Puzzling Times . The world is a puzzle in which we search for connections that help us make sense of the not just the big picture, but of each part adjacent to us. Childhood Memories So I began to wonder, "What childhood objects and activities are others reconnecting with during these times?" The above image of a puzzle , Izzi , would have been one I would have loved as a child, and one my grandchildren will remember fondly, as it was a favorite for them when they visited as youngsters. As I continued my thoughts, I remembered that I'd connected childhood toys and activities in prior posts: In Childhood Objects , I ramble throug
