The Power of Authenticity: Motivating Students with Meaningful Audiences—A CLTV episode at Educator Innovator

January 16, 2018

Join educators Laura Bradley, Kate Fox, and Jennifer von Wahlde as they discuss the ways they have been supporting students by finding authentic audiences and making connections outside their classrooms that are meaningful beyond the standard audience of one, the teacher. As LRNG Innovator grantees, these teachers have been designing for connected learning in their contexts, exploring the power that authentic audiences have for their students' motivations and performances. Join them to hear about what they have been discovering as well as how they have been designing this work.

During the broadcast, the conversation will also take place on Twitter using the hashtag #connectedlearning
