Connected Learning and the Invitational Summer Institute

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. ....Conversations open up, communities proliferate, networks are born, teachers become designers, and individual creativity blossoms in pluralistic fashion.  If joining in on the #clmooc experience is bit like being a drifting dandelion seed (see the "Ode to the Dandelion" post in this Collection), then the marriage of the ISI model with the #clmooc experience mirrors the full blown blossom of a summer wildflower field. This collection is an entry point to discovering the richness of this convergence.  It is a curation of connected learning reflections emerging from Summer Institutes.  The musings here are rooted in the first iteration of our Massive Open Online Collaboration - Summer 2013.  This summer's #clmooc (2014) will no doubt yield even more beauty as the seeds take hold and flourish.  Behold the bounty of the summer wildflower field.....
