Connecting dots for digital learning and teaching


Leah Gilliam from Hive Learning Network was at the National Network of Statewide Afterschool Networks Annual Meeting in DC where she’s participating in two sessions and highlighting some of the exciting work that has come from the rich collaborations and partnerships within Hive NYC. One session explores how to build and sustain digital learning opportunities from a networked perspective and via partnerships. The other focuses on the Maker Movement in the afterschool space, namely, what “making” looks like in informal learning and how it empowers learners. We’ll share more details following those sessions soon!

 

It’s the 2nd annual Digital Learning Day, and once again, we’ve compiled a bunch of great resources from within the network to share with you. They are all available to anyone looking for information or inspiration on how to incorporate digital learning practices and pedagogies into their learning spaces. They’ve all been tested in afterschool, out-of-school and summer learning environments, and they’re free for you to use, remix and share.

  1. I am really impressed with Quest to Learn. This approach to learning provides students with opportunities to take the information they have learned and apply it.

Teaching with games is always a hit because students can learn the essential skills while having fun.
