This week we focus on learning as a social activity. We explore remixing and support people connecting to each other to share ideas, collaborate on projects, and build on one another's work.
In this video, Mitch Resnick shares strategies for encouraging and supporting peer learning within physical spaces and online communities.Subtitles are available in multiple languages.
Learn more about different ways people can collaborate, and what teaching looks like in a learning community.
This week we’d like for you to reflect in small groups, connecting to other members of the LCL community.
Reach out to one or more people in the LCL community and discuss together, online or offline: What does peer-learning look like in your practice? What are the challenges and opportunities? What can you learn from each other’s experience? Share something about your interaction and your reflections in the forum!
Would you like to meet the LCL team and the rest of the community?
Join our video calls, every Monday 9.00-10.00 AM and 4.00-5.00 PM (Boston time)
We’d love to see you there!
