On this episode of TTT (recorded 7.24.13), we invite you to join some of the instigators and nurturers of this summer's #clmooc (A Massive Open Online Collaboration about Connected Learning). Listen as these inspiring educators envision future communitites of learning together.
Making Learning Connected http://blog.nwp.org/clmooc/#clmooc was a massive open online collaboration -- it was a collaborative, knowledge-building and sharing experience focused on making and connected learning. In #clmooc, participants designed and engaged in "makes" -- creative projects -- that tapped into participants’ personal (and professional) interests.
In this episode of TTT, we talk with several participants and facilitators of #clmooc about their experiences and how they envision taking what they have learned forward to apply it in other contexts.

Troy Hicks is the Director of the Chippewa River Writing Project at Central Michigan University and this is the first of a two-part series exploring the principles and practices described in his new book. https://twitter.com/hickstro http://hickstro.org/
For this first episode, we welcome three teachers from the book to describe how they approach the craft of digital writing with audio, video, and other multimedia tools.
Elana Waugh, Bath Elementary School, explains how her students used mixed media to create a digital book project. http://ewaugh.edublogs.org/
On this episode of TTT, @kfasimpaur @JimNordlinger @paulallison @monk51295 and Marina Lombardo consider what video or videos might come from the Youth Voics Summer Program.
This is a planning-in-public episode on Teachers Teaching Teachers, which we held less than a week before we launched into the three-week Youth Voices program this July, which was the New York City Writing Project's participation in the Summer of Making and Connecting and part of the National Writing Project's Educator Innovator.
The week before this episode of TTT, with my colleagues in the New York City Writing Project, Grace Raffaele, Jim Nordlinger, Noah Gordon, and Aliyah Hayes, we had been individually meeting 13 high school students were joined by five teachers for a three-week summer program focused on http://youthvoices.net/grid and http://youthvoices.net/play
What an exciting group of youths we were lucky enough to gather for this program! And thank you to all of our supporters who contributed to make this possible!
On this episode of TTT, Jim Nordlinger our video production lead and Karen Fasimpaur (who joined us in the third week) and I continue an ongoning conversations we've been having about the story we want to tell with a video that Jim has been shooting about the deep learning students and teachers do together on Youth Voices. Even as I type these notes for the podcast (from my one-week vacation in mid-August) Jim is working to finish editing the many, many hours of video that he captured during our work together in July. Reviewing this episode of TTT and seeing your comments should at least inspire Jim, and might also suggest an angle that he had forgotten.
From the intake interviews in the last week of June (and even before in a teacher's classroom) to the final exhibition on July 25th Jim has been pointing his camera at our interactions. On this episode of TTT we be talk about what story we want to tell with this video project.
Please take the time to listen to this podcast, then we would love for you to add any insights you might have about what audience we should be aiming to connect with (the average civilian?) and what message we want to convey about the way teachers and students can work together in an online learning space built on National Writing Project values and beliefs.
Enjoy this episode of TTT, as we make transparent our planning process. We would love to have you challenge us and support us, to make us re-think and to be inspired as well.

Holly Groder and Kaye Rabel joined Jennifer Maddrell this week on the Designers for Learning webcast at EdTechTalk.com. Holly and Kaye are graduate students in the Instructional Design and Technology program at Old Dominion University. Both recently completed pro bono projects with clients in a Consulting Skills for Instructional Designers course. They discussed their experiences working with real clients in authentic applied learning projects conducted outside the safe haven of the classroom. Based on their experiences, as well as their perspectives as instructional designers, they contemplated how similar service-learning projects could support students in online or blended courses.
