Learning Cirlce

Welcome back to school!!!!

This second half of the year we will start working with Collaborative Projects. Take a look at IEARN a non-profit organization that fosters the use of new technologies in the classroom.

What is a Learning Circle?
It is team of 6-8 teachers and their classes joined in the virtual space of an electronic classroom. The groups remains together over a 3-4 month period working on projects drawn from the curriculum of each of the classrooms organized around a selected theme. At the end of the term the group collects and publishes its work. Then, just as any class of students does, the Learning Circle comes to an end. Each session begins with new groupings of classes into Learning.

We will start this collaborative project in September and will finish it in December. The deadlines are very important so next class we will discuss how to present the information we must share and how to reach deadlines.
Happy learning!!!!
