Excerpt from Show

Joe Dillon, of the Denver Writing Project, on why Writing Project educators should be interested in Making Learning Connected (#clmooc):

We had our first go at this MOOC last summer and what really emerged was, we heard from all kinds of benefits to being in the MOOC. Some, for example, were really reflecting on how, by engaging with the networked tools that we used to pull off this Massive Open Online Collaboration, they felt like they were gaining traction with new tools to use educational technology in their classroom. Other folks were simply interested in learning more from a broad base of National Writing Project teachers."
