The last time I did this…

The last time I joined a learning community, it was the Connected Learning MOOC and I felt welcomed and guided. In fact, one of the organizers pointed me to Digital Is and here I am.

In the past several months, I’ve discovered how important acceptance and encouragement are in fostering participation. For someone new, the key is trust.

I’m learning how my students will feel when I send them to Youth Voices and start our class blog in September.

“What do I do?” they’ll ask.

“Just write something.” I’ll say.
