This podcast invites educators to connect with many groups, organizations or individual educators to bring the learning from inside the classroom to connect with real-world projects. It also shares the pedagogical process and the purpose of connection based learning.

Ellen is a risk-taker who tailors the learning to the needs of the students. “It doesn’t matter the Grade you teach when you focus on real-world experiences”. Learning from inquiring and having students capture their thinking when learning. The students are doing the thinking for themselves and consolidating to share the learning. Recognizing how their thinking has changed and communicating thinking.
