Revisit Connect Learning — The Downers Grove Files

Educators discussing the new shape of informationI was informed on Monday that the three podcast files from the teachers’ discussion at the Downers Grove Summit were not playing. A little investigation revealed that there was a problem with the files on, so I uploaded them again, and re-linked them yesterday morning.

I urge you to revisit Connect Learning ( and listen to Episode 36 — Audio Files 1 – 3. They are recordings of a discussion held at the Downers Grove Summit, where high school teachers suggested and discussed applications of the new information environment for teaching and learning. Also participating were:

  • a couple of administrators,
  • 1 media specialist,
  • 1 guidance counselor,
  • 1 elementary teacher, and
  • 1 student

This is a must listen.
