I teach sixth grade and I am also the technology liaison with the Western Massachusetts Writing Project. As an educator and a writer, I try to explore the intersections of those worlds. I seek to encourage curiosity as well as make connections to curriculum. Learning is more than lecture and listening. Learning is about diving in, exploring, reflecting and connecting back to the classroom environment.

What Is This?

We’re spending the #CLMOOC (Connected Learning Massive Open Online Collaboration) summer with doodles. Every day this month, we will propose a daily theme for you to consider doodling to, or riffing off.

Whatever strikes your fancy, go for it. Each day will be somewhat connected with a theme of “mapping.”

This CLMOOC adventure has dovetailed with yet another open learning project called Write Out, an invitation to connect with public spaces by the National Writing Project and the National Park Service, although feel free to use any open space in any country for any writing you want.

Share your doodling with the #clmooc and #writeout hashtags on Twitter, or in any other space you inhabit.

Since this is The Daily Connector, we encourage you to explore the maps of others, too. Maybe remix or riff off the ideas. Engage in discussions. Ask questions. Take an imaginary journey through the maps of someone else. Write about it.
