Global Kids’ Online Leadership Program: Researchers Introduce New Model of Learning. Connected Learning: Designed to ‘mine the new social, digital domain’
Citing an ever-widening gap between in-school and out-of-school learning experiences, a team of researchers today introduced a model of learning — ‘connected learning’ — that taps into the rich new world of information, knowledge, and online collaboration available to youth and learners.
The connected learning model, which is anchored in a large body of research on how youth are using social media, the internet and digital media to learn and develop expertise, also seeks to respond to deepening fears of a class-based “equity” gap in education that, without intervention, is likely to be accelerated by disproportionate access to technology and new forms of knowledge sharing.
