Peers

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.

Make & Share

This week we invite you to create a remix! Choose one of the projects shared on LCL in the past few weeks (or any other project that inspires you) and create your own version of it. You can remix anything: it can be something physical, a poem, a recipe, or a Scratch project!

Share your remix in the forum and thank the author of the original project. What inspired you about the original project? What did you change and why? If one of your projects was remixed, how did it feel?

Start the Activity

Reflect & Discuss

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!

Join the Conversation

Meet & Chat

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!
