#clinquiry Authenticity and Engagment

  

How do I create authentic learning spaces of making and reflecting that empower self-directed learning?

How do I empower learners — to encourage agency for their own learning?

This summer, I spent much time investigating that question on my own and with colleagues from #clmooc. Michael Weller instigated the process of considering a question to guide our course during the school year.

I’ve documented my first process and thinking of this inquiry in BlendSpace, and the Google Slides below summarize the inspirations from several projects and book clubs completed over the summer. As I have learned over thirty years of teaching, it is the doing that brings the learning. Therefore, I “did” all summer — I created and discovered spaces to make and reflect on the power of directing my own learning.

As I consider how to create these learning spaces in my classroom, I’ll share more on this blog. For now, I’ve gathered the summer inspirations here:
