Extending the Learning

I’ve written before about the New Hampshire Department of Education’s Extended Learning Opportunities (ELO) initiative. Today, ANE is lucky enough to host a group of 60 or so folks connected with this work from around New Hampshire. Aside from seeing some familiar faces, I’m seeing a really amazing level of energy among the group. If you don’t know the ins-and-outs of ELOs, trust me when I say that they represent another avenue for us to use Critical Skills in real world settings. A good ELO has the same elements and outcomes as a good challenge: it enables kids to learn content and process at the same time, in rigorous, empowering ways. I’d love to see some of you- the CS community- intentionally tying your work into the ELO work. Then again, maybe you already are. Share you stories in the comments!
