Innovative Learners Series: Connect

Learner Series Intro:

Welcome to PyxisEdu’s Innovative Learners Series. We believe that every time you walk into your classroom you’re not delivering content, you’re providing opportunities. Every activity you work so hard to plan, every lesson you deliver is an opportunity for learning. This series will explore one of these Awesome 8 Learning Opportunities. Feel free to use individual resources, but to get a more in-depth understanding of this opportunity, we have organized the resource into a logical order. 

Collection Description:  

Establishing context is a necessity for a teacher, but each learner needs to make a personal connection too.  Technology can help students access information in an order and sequence that works for them as well as provide a medium for expression.  

Guiding Questions:

  • How can we use personal connections to engage students?
  • Where can local and global audiences encourage more authentic personal experiences?

Goals/Objectives:

By the end of this collection, you will be able to:

  • Have a good understanding how effective personal connection can create learning opportunities
  • Understand multiple strategies that use technology to help students make connections
  • Create an activity that effectively delivers content through connection
  • Modify and build a technology rich, instructionally sound lesson plan that allows for students to make learning part of their personal story
