LCL started on March 18 with six weeks of discussions and activities, followed by a few weeks to work on projects, leading to a creative-learning exhibition in May. There will be online sessions on Tuesdays from 1:00-2:00pm Boston time. LCL will focus on key aspects of the Media Lab approach to learning: Projects, Peers, Passion, and Play. We invite you to apply these ideas to your own teaching and learning experiences. Together, we can reimagine and reinvent education. Find out more on: http://learn.media.mit.edu

Join ten Media Lab students to learn more about their work and the different research groups they are affiliated with. What happens on March 28th? After a short welcome, we will break out into small group conversations - where participants can ask questions and share ideas. Each conversation is hosted by a current MIT Media Lab student, who will talk about their research, the philosophy of the groups they are affiliated with, and what goes on at the Lab in general.

We want to experiment this year with a number of different ways to advance ideas, i.e. to put Ideas in Action. We have the opportunity to try an interesting new format - virtual conversations using the Unhangout Platform. We are inviting some of our speakers to be hosts of virtual discussion rooms on Feb 12. On the day of the event, there will be a kick-off webinar, after which people will proceed to the session they are interested in. In the individual discussion room, participants will hear from a speaker, view a TEDxBeaconStreet talk and discuss it. We hope this catalyzes interest, ideas, and the potential for follow-up to help advance the idea.

Throughout July, NWP partnered with Connected Learning TV to host a webinar series called Writers at Work: Making and Connected Learning. As a wrap-up to our series we invite you to regroup here to debrief with us, test and tinker with this new unHangout tool, and continue the great conversations that have been started! We will start with a whole group kick-off and then split up into smaller group discussions, based on themes and topics raised by the seminar series. Please be aware that this is a “beta-test webinar” so your adventurous spirit is welcome.
