The CoLearning Network (CLN) provided an online learning community for educators to connect and collaborate with colleagues. When active, CLN supported work and learning not necessarily available within individual school districts.
The network — developed through a partnership involving C21L and leaders from several Colorado school districts — featured:
- Collective documentation and discussion space for projects;
- Digital conference and collaboration opportunities with colleagues outside your school or district;
- A venue for forums in which educators can demonstrate and reflect on practices that support 21st century learning;
- Networked learning events, including monthly webinars related to advancing 21st century learning.
Archived webinar topics from 2011 and 2012 include:
- Developing an online learning program — the Academy 20 story;
- Flipping the classroom — an evolution from teaching to learning
- Teacher inquiry as professional learning
- Harrison School District’s 21st Century Learning Program
- Student presentations of learning
- Dimensions of Engaged teaching and learning
- Innovation Lab — learning in a space that isn’t your typical school
- Power of simulations to support “value-skills” learning
- Operating in a Democratic classroom
- Transformative teaching and learning for 21st Century skills
- Inspiring School in the Woods young naturalists to become lifelong learners.
Help to transform professional learning:
…from instruction to inquiry
…from getting to doing
…from seat time to outcomes
…from isolation to community
By changing the way in which adults learn, the network’s efforts help to change the learning we provide for students.
