Making Learning Connected is an event we offered during The Summer to Make, Play & Connect by Educator Innovator and was powered by educators from the National Writing Project. The goals of this MOOC are to: a) engage participants in interest-driven, making-centered experiences that embody Connected Learning principles; b) to adopt a collaborative approach and a reflective stance toward the processes of making and learning; and c) to provide an...
What possibilities emerge for Writing Project sites when you take the traditional Invitational Summer Institute (ISI) and infuse that model with the principles of Connected Learning? What role might the Make Learning Connected MOOC (#clmooc) play in the unfolding Summer Institute? This collection offers a glimpse of the possibilities that might emerge when the work of the the ISI and the #clmooc converge.
As eBooks and immersive, web-based texts continue to proliferate, many of us still wonder how to approach this type of reading, both for ourselves and our students. Even as librarians, teachers, and readers debate the quality, availability, and just plain fun of ebooks, we know that more and more of our students are experiencing them. In this collection, we explore a variety of formats for and questions about ebooks and immersive texts.
CLMOOC is a collaborative, knowledge-building and sharing experience that is open to anyone who is interested in making, creativity, and learning. In it, we designed and engaged in "makes"—creative projects—that tap into our personal (and professional) interests.
What does it look like when young people are writing on their own terms, in spaces outside of school? What new ways of composing do digital media tools open up for us, and what does that mean as it relates to literacy pedagogy and writing instruction inside of schools? This collection features resources written by Hip-hop & spoken word artists & entrepreneurs who work first-hand with youth on initiatives that center youth production and literacy.
After last year's inaugural Connected Educator Month, participating teachers argued “every month should be connected educator month.” And here at NWP Digital Is, where we explore digital literacies and connected learning, we couldn't agree more. In this collection, explore ways to connect during Connected Educator Month and to stay connected throughout the year!

This collection pulls together the research by Josyln Young. Young "wanted to figure out more about what teaching, learning, and pedagogy look like beyond the classroom" and studied young producers at the Philadelphia Student Union and Chester Voices for Change and how they learn and master skills in media production.
This collection brings together content from the NWP Digital Is website which demonstrate some of the key principles of connected learning while also opening up a discussion about the implications of this work for learning both inside and outside of school.
Assessment of multimedia composing is a very young discipline. Resources here capture how we might re-refashion our learning expectations and criteria for composing- in both traditional and multimedia settings.
We have assembled this collection so that teachers may know the territory of machine scoring writing and, when and if their school system considers adopting one of these machine-reading services, they may act appropriately. We believe ourselves that machine-scoring fundamentally alters the social and rhetorical nature of writing—that writing to a machine is not writing at all.
