Episode 94: Learning happens in the process of creating not the product created

Jeff Utecht September 18, 2019

Jeff Utecht August 14, 2019

As we continue on our August theme of 1:1 Summer of Fun I break down two of the major mind-shifts I believe need to happen before we worry about the actual technology in the classroom. Understand that we are redefining what it means to be “Knowledgable” and how we must shift to helping students organize their own learning in a decentralized knowledge world. I hope you enjoy!

Episode 91: Becoming Relevant Again: Applying Connectivism Learning Theory to Today’s Classroom.

Jeff Utecht August 7, 2019

To kick off August and a month of 1:1 Summer of Fun we start with my reading of the peer-reviewed article I wrote along with Doreen Keller that was published in May 2019.
