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.

This group is for youth (13 and over) and teachers. It is a place to make stuff -- like digital stories, food, electronics, apps, robots, rockets, clothes, and more -- and to share with others. There are short projects that just take an hour or so and bigger projects that might take several days. Just choose whatever you want to work on and go!
