Connected Learning for the Curious: A podcast by Laura Gogia

Yesterday I tuned in to the Teaching in Higher Ed podcast episode which features Laura Gogia. Laura is an inspirational advocate and expert in connected learning, having recently graduated with her PhD investigating the “(potential) role of digital annotations* in edu-blogging and tweeting assessment.”

I really enjoyed listening to her podcast, which reinforced many of my own understandings and beliefs about connected learning, but also provided insights into some different perspectives as well. I have summarised the podcast in the form of an infographic (multimodal literacy!) and include it here for you, however I do also encourage you to take time to listen to the podcast in full. Clicking on the image of the infographic will give you access to a high resolution PDF version of the infographic, which might be easier to read, and definitely easier to print should you wish.

I have blogged before about the amazing connective powers of the PLN, and as my research is focusing on how teachers experience professional learning through their PLN, I am finding Laura’s work to be extremely interesting!

Please scroll below the infographic, for a selection of useful related resources that are either referenced in the podcast, or that I have personally found to be relevant and helpful.

  1. Thanks so much for writing this piece and sharing your thoughts and insights from Laura Gogia’s podcast! This is just what I needed – I’m prepping for a presentation on how I connect students to the ‘real world’ and you’ve given me lots to reflect on. The infographic is well done and easy to follow-a great model for what I need to do. I’ll link to this post with a QR code so others can see what you’ve presented here!

    1. Thank you so much for getting in touch – I’m thrilled that you have found my post useful, and wish you all the very best!
