Virtual Learning Dens: A Third Space for Playful Reflection
In partnership with the Mendon-Upton Regional School District, the MIT Playful Journey Lab is developing Learning Dens—virtual spaces that provide a weekly activity series to promote playful interactions and reflection among learners. These spaces create a safe, social, virtual opportunity to help educators connect with and support their students and for students to connect with and support one another. Learning Den activities emphasize creative and collaborative forms of reflection and empower each student to recognize the different circumstances that their peers have faced over these past months of the pandemic, fostering a sense of connection and community.
You can stream the webinar and participate in the subsequent Q & A session here on Wednesday, April 7th 2021, 3:00 – 4:00 pm (GMT, London, UK): https://youtu.be/X-VLUVKNPQE
