Connected students: a resource

I have been following the Connectivism 08 online course on the fringes (not registered or anything) but catching up with the Friday chats when I can and have enjoyed them very much. Really good and thoughtful work going on there. The course is put together by George Siemens and Stephen Downes and lots of people are doing the course. And then today I found a video on YouTube via twitter, which I wanted to share as a great resource and example. Thanks Wendy

The Networked Student was inspired by CCK08, a Connectivism course offered by George Siemens and Stephen Downes during fall 2008. It depicts an actual project completed by Wendy Drexler's high school students. The Networked Student concept map was inspired by Alec Couros' Networked Teacher. I hope that teachers will use it to help their colleagues, parents, and students understand networked learning in the 21st century.
