Connected Learning: Martha’s Story

What are some of the possibilities for our connected learners, with online savvy, a passion, and adult and community support? What is possible living in a world that everyone has a voice that can be shared globally? Ewan McIntosh post shares this terrific story of a nine year old Scottish student who posts her thoughts of her school cafeteria offerings: #NeverSeconds:

Martha shows every facet of great learning: real world change, making the environment around her better, sharing her thinking with the world, having a conscious for the world beyond her immediate horizons, and robustness in the face of incredible media and social media pressure. She is another ‘Caine’, with a supportive parent and facilitating adults around her. She’ll go far.

Fabulous story that highlights the power and promise of Connected Learning!
