Today's Announcement: Exploring Student Engagement Thorugh Connections

Welcome to Unit 2, everyone! Our theme this week is “The Power of Connections,” and we’re going to be exploring the importance of both self-reflection and collaboration when it comes to student engagement.

A great way to start the week is to read the dialogue and watch the inspiring videos of Emilee Little and Chris Brewster in the first item in the unit: “Student Engagement and the Power of Connections.” And by the way, if you want to hear more about/from Emilee and Chris, you can watch their full interview videos by following these links:

Also, while we’re on the subject of engaging through connections, I thought I would throw out this fun item my wife and I created yesterday (in our copious spare time). 

This is a sendup of all the edtech news roundups I’ve created over the years, as well as a good example of an “open” or “addition” improv (I’ll be talking about those next week). I designed it to appeal to a number of the different communities I belong to -- personal and professional -- and can use it to network between them. Besides, what’s not to like about something that bridges The Grateful Dead and Les Paul and Mary Ford?

As always, please comment on the items you read or watch and use our hashtag -- #NTPoC!
