Welcome to Staying Connected

new daily connect

We’re finding ways to help us all stay connected.

What are you doing up here? The Daily Connects post are down below. Have fun. Wait! Do you still have an idea for the Daily Connect? Use this form to submit your own.  You can also now view all of the idea submissions (some we used; some we didn’t), so feel free to steal/remix/adapt/share. This whole thing has been one huge collaborative, connected experience and we appreciate your help and collaboration.

The Daily Connect is inspired by the DS106 Daily Create, and was first part of the Connected Courses network and is now part of the Connected Learning (CLMOOC) adventure. We adapt.

#CLMOOC Feldgang Variations: Take a Learning Walk

My Clover Collage June 27

A learning walk can be different things (in schools, it sometimes refers to a walkabout into classrooms for observation). Here, we think of it in terms of closely observing nature. Think of it as a way to closely observe a small space you have taken for granted, by looking at it closer, with intention. One way to do this is through photos in a collage format, so that the geographic area is small in size but your lens of looking close is expansive.

 


A Feldgang is a close exploration, a quiet deep dive into the world. For CLMOOC, we are using the idea of a Feldgang as our theme.

You can share in your usual places. We invite you to use the #clmooc hashtag on Twitter, or the CLMOOC Facebook group, or share in the CLMOOC Flickr Group, or come into a new space under development called YAP.Net, designed for draft writing and sharing in a safe space. We’ll see you there.

#CLMOOC Feldgang Variations: Your Library is a Field of Wonder

Your public or school library is a treasure trove of beautiful things. You probably know that already. For this activity, go into your public library space and treat it like a field. What flowers do you see? What seeds are being planted? Where is the shade tree? Use metaphor, it helps, or maybe create a map. Perhaps you make a list. Or make art from images of the spines of the books.
