In the 21st century, we have witnessed tremendous change in how we understand knowledge and information, how we communicate, and how we see the world and ourselves. The way we understand learning and pedagogy must be transformed to reflect this new reality. One approach through which we can achieve this transformation is by applying the principles of connected learning to our practice.
The term connected learning is used frequently, and different interpretations of what connected learning is abound. In this webinar, I will present the empirically researched Connected Learning Framework, a pedagogical approach to understanding connected learning which is both a learning strategy and a blueprint for learning design.
Implementing a connected learning approach creates opportunities for collaboration, creativity, imagination & knowledge construction. This presentation will allow participants to become familiar with the Connected Learning Framework. It will also provide real life examples of connected learning, and suggestions for how this learning approach may be embedded in formal and informal learning contexts.
Outcomes for attendee:
- Understand what connected learning is
- Explain the elements, core properties and design principles of connected learning
- Identify connected learning opportunities in formal and informal contexts
- Argue the case for implementing connected learning for greater student engagement and participatory 21st century learning
- Access further reading and resources
