Blearning: #OntCL on Blended Learning

Technology and learning keep evolving, and at a rapid pace these days. As educators, this means there is always something new to explore, new ways to engage students, collaborate and make learning an authentic experience.

The OntCLC live Twitter Chat las Wednesday (March 7th, 2012) provided a great opportunity to share current thinking on Blearning.

What’s Blearning?  Blearning seems to be the evolving new term to mean Blended Learning.  Lisa Neale prepare this blog post as a backgrounder for the discussion:  The What and Why of Blended Learning.

As anticipated, it the live Twitter discussion, yielded some great sharing of ideas, insights and reflections. You can check out the discussion stream at  #OntCL Blended Learning Twitter Stream (March 7, 2012 portion).

#OntCL Kickoff

Tonight  the official kickoff for the first Ontario ConnectEd Leaders chat event happened.  Participation was great, and there was an action packed 75 minutes of sharing on tonight’s topic: Why Be a Connected Leader and What to Tweet.

The energy was amazing – great synergy.  I think there is already anticipation of the next  event. Thank you to all participants for a great event.

I have captured a few highlights below.
