Unlike learning in face-to-face and traditional school settings, connected learners develop a more generic set of values that help them negotiate learning in blended environments. A primary shift for all of us who are creating learning and connecting with our students online is the ability to see yourself as a co-learner, co-creator and co-leader.
Does anything Sheryl says in this clip resonate with you? What questions do you have about how to create new norms and values that position you well to adapt to learning in a connected world. Let’s discuss these ideas below.

This video was exactly what I needed in this moment. It gave me a moment to pause, reset, and recenter my approach in supporting teachers supporting students. It’s easy to get distracted and place the co-learner further down on the priority list. Thank you for helping me refocus–learner first, teacher second.
Thanks Carey! I am glad you found it helpful. We would love to hear more about how you are refocusing and want to encourage you to consider joining the PLP Community Hub for support this school year. It is free and hundreds of educators are there trying to find our way collectively.
This was so helpful and energizing. The idea of co -creation really resonates with me and has been big part of how I have grown over the years as a teacher. Moving that online has been a big shift for me and I find myself wanting to avoid it. So, when you talked about values, dispositions, and constructs needing to be there first and then finding the tools that support them it brought meaning to the importance of learning the tools.
