New Mexico DART Community of Practice

We’ve created a community in which all stakeholders are co-creators of knowledge that leads all to take wise action, so we can answer these questions: 

  • How do we best engage the wisdom of indigenous communities as essential for the new pathways for meaningful connection with technology? 

  • How do we best engage our youth learners to be seen and heard in meaningful connection with technology? 

  • How will parents/grandparents/caretakers be engaged in supporting learning at home? 

  • How will this project support school learning engagement?

Learning Together happens best in a Community of Practice! And WE are all Learners: Students, Parents, Grandparents, Caretakers, Teachers, Guides, Facilitators, and Administrators.

WHAT is a Community of Practice? 

A Community of Practice (CoP) is a set of relationships and ongoing interactions among a group of individuals with common interests. Together, we co-generate a safe, welcoming, and supportive environment in which learners of all ages and facilitators collaborate to problem-solve challenges and complete projects. In this space, we will discover insights related to work-based learning, as it will naturally develop the 21st Century Teaching and Learning Skills needed for problem-solving including Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking/Innovation, Self-Direction, Using Technology for Learning, and Making Local and Global connections. We will have the opportunity to play and learn with learning software and other tools to support connection and learning.
