This Fall if you’re looking for a collaborative project with a weekly structure you might want to register for the next session of Learning Circles starting September 22nd, 2012 and ending January 15th, 2013.
Over 15 weeks (with a 1 week break over the holiday week in December) you’ll grouped with a small number of classrooms from around the world to work on a Learning Circle theme of your choice. See the themes for 2012-2013
The structure of a Learning Circle comes from it’s design of phases. The first phase, “Getting Ready” at the start of the course, prepares you for participation in the project. In the following phases you get to know other circle members and progress to working together under your selected theme, but with your own curriculum. Your circle closes with each classroom presenting a final product that demonstrates the quality of learning that has taken place. Learn more about Learning Circles.
