Join some of the participants in 3rd Space Conference and others interested in community collaborations to discuss what went on in St. Louis last month. We'll also talk about and how we can bring this work into our local communities in the future, wherever we are.

The 3rd Space Conference, held July 9-13, 2012, in St. Louis,
ourcolab.org/the-invitational-summer-institutes-teachers-teaching-teachers/ brought together teams from local sites of the National Writing Project and museums around the US to explore creating projects and curriculum that take advantage of collaborations among  students, teachers, and local communities.

Join us on this episode of TTT edtechtalk.com/ttt to learn more about combining the insights and work of artists and museum professionals with hands-on art making and understanding activities for students. 

*Third space? Third place?* 

There's a useful summary of some of these concepts on Wikipedia, and it starts like this: 

The third place (also known as Third Space) is a term used in the concept of community building to refer to social surroundings separate from the two usual social environments of home and the workplace. In his influential book The Great Good Place, Ray Oldenburg (1989, 1991) argues that third places are important for civil society, democracy, civic engagement, and establishing feelings of a sense of place. --Wikipedia (accessed 8.21.12) en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Third_place&oldid=500220817
