Networked Student

Wendy Drexler uploaded this video onto her Youtube channel in November 2008. It beautifully illustrates problem based learning and the journey a student takes in a digitally fluent manner.

Wendy Drexler comments: "The Networked Student was inspired by CCK08, a Connectivism course offered by George Siemens and Stephen Downes during fall 2008.  It depicts an actual project completed by Wendy Drexler's high school students.  The Networked Student concept map was inspired by Alec Couros' Networked Teacher.  I hope that teachers will use it to help their colleagues, parents, and students understand networked learning in the 21st century.
Anyone is free to use this video for educational purposes.  You may download, translate, or use as part of another presentation.  Please share."

Thomas Steeley-May, teacher and blogger, inspired by Wendy's work with her students, is using this project  for his own students as reflected in a recent post on one of his blogs WHS Innovation and Integration. What can we learn from these innovative teachers?

For us to engage our students in this manner where fit for purpose, we need to learn and understand our role in facilitating student engagement in a connected world. How networked are you as educator?
