    Student Voice & Choice Hot Dish: Recipes for Better Relationships, Better Learning & Computational Thinking Made Easy

    What Is Connected Learning (CL)?
    Learn the core concepts of Connected Learning (relationships, interests and real-world application) and how this can look in libraries by looking at a practice model and thinking about adapting the concepts to your own setting.

    Workshop Outcomes

    Participants will:

    • Understand the philosophy of Connected Learning as it relates to Educational and Career opportunities
    • Explore the Six Principles of Connected Learning
    • Think about how to operationalize Connected Learning theory into practice
    • Learn about how a library has incorporated Connected Learning into a production-centered site

    Connecting CL & Computational Thinking (CT)
    Even for beginners, CT doesn’t need to be scary. Ditch the fear by getting hands-on experience and a chance to discuss what computational thinking is and how it can be integrated into children’s and teen activities. Then discuss ways to combine that with Connected Learning for killer programs.

    Workshop Outcomes

    Participants will be able to:

    • Articulate how CL environments support youth learning of CT
    • Understand how to get started designing CL-connected CT activities

    Current members: $35
    Non-members: $50
    Workshop + reduced-price membership: $85 ($10 savings)

    Lunch (a variety of sandwiches) is included, and attendees earn 6 CEUs.

    Note: The workshop is geared to grades 3-12

    Registration deadline is July 10. Space is limited, so don't delay.
