Happy 1st of June! Summer is the perfect time to catch up on the latest Digital Is news, blog posts, and resources!


We’re happy to be one of the educational communities listed on ConnectedEducators.org. Come give us some “love” and see who else is on the list at http://connectededucators.org/community/digital-is/!


We are very excited to announce our next P2PU study group: Making Writing and Literacy Learning Connections

The study group runs July 9 to July 27, 2012, so mark your calendars and sign up now! Each week we’ll focus on a different aspect of inquiry and practice related to writing, teaching and connected learning through our own experiences and those of the NWP Digital Is community.

(You can look back at our first course, Writing and Inquiry in the Digital Age here or learn more about P2PU here.)
