Reader Response: What is Next in the Digital Maker Playground?

Digital tools now allow readers to create, connect, and extend their thinking in innovative ways. This class will give teachers the time and support to explore new possibilities for reader response in traditional workshop spaces or connected spaces of their choice. Participants will be provided with hands on opportunities to experience the power of creation and authentic problem solving in a blended learning environment. Teachers will apply new learning in their classrooms as they support students in digital reader response. Our learning community will reflect on its practice, and collaboratively produce a professional digital iBook to support other educators.

The Digital Maker Playground

Digital Maker Playground is a unique opportunity open to everyone near and far. All educators are invited to play with us as we explore new tools, create and compose projects around the themes listed, as well as share and collaborate with other educators around the world. This year our work will be focused around reader response. Our work will be housed in our Google+ Community, which will allow us to connect with each other easily. Use #P2Lmooc when sharing your work on Twitter for another way to connect with others.
