Student protest movement leads to connected learning in Brazil

Rovena-Rosa_Agência-Brasil_-535x268Ocupa Escola – Occupy School – is a Brazillian protest movement led by students in a number of schools that the government attempted to shut down. Students are using social and participatory media to operate a system of “class donations” in which real world experts – artists, mathematicians, scientists, writers – offer free lessons and workshops to students who have physically occupied and taken over their schools to save them from closure.
