What is Connected Learning. Ninth-grader Charles Raben has seen first-hand that by connecting the many spheres of his life -- peers, interests and academic pursuits -- new learning experiences can and will present themselves in both organized and unstructured ways.
In the summer of 2012, Charles utilized his photography skills and the petition website Change.org to capture and share the story of Jerry Delakas, a longtime local newsstand operator who was in danger of losing his New York City license over a technicality. "I wanted to have that experience of creating change myself. " The petition-making process proved to be a life-changing learning experience for the teen.

The consecration of the selfie. A cultural history. Abstract (French version, pdf).
The term ‘selfie’ corresponds to a late process of identifying a set of photo or video reflexive practices, related to the emergence of an aesthetic of subjectivity. Exploring the articulation between autonomy of shooting and participation in the action, as well as the take-off produced by conversational uses, this article shows that a media controversy triggered this phenomena. In 2013, the denunciation of the narcissistic character of self-representation or disrespect of values and norms presents the selfie as a subculture. Blueprint for a Transmedia Classroom — Silverstring Media. On Saturday I was at DIY Days in New York, an event organized by Lance Weiler's Workbook Project as a gathering of creatives.
I was honoured to sit on a panel with Laura Fleming and my Time Tribe partner Karen Wehner on using transmedia in education and for children. Education has always been an area I wanted to explore with Silverstring Media, back when I started in 2010. The panel, which we called Worlds of Learning, started off by looking at where education has gone wrong -- that one-way lectures and rote learning don't work, that schools are lacking for funding and teachers, that kids aren't learning the skills and technologies that will actually help them in the real world. It's a hot-button issue -- millions of dollars are being poured into trying to find a solution to these problems. Karen, Laura and I suggested that one solution is to use transmedia storytelling methods to engage kids in their education.

Laura Park Gogia: The Coloring Book: Defining "Connected Learning" through Educational Research Literature. What is connected learning? I admit that I have always answered that question using the Connected Learning Research Network’s Connected Learning: An Agenda for Research and Design.
But when I got systematic about it, and searched the academic databases that exist beyond Google Scholar, “Connected Learning” elicited a surprising number of peer-reviewed journal articles some that predated my favorite report by almost 20 years. So I opted to be systematic and review relevant literature in ERIC, Educational Research Complete (ERC), and Academic Search Complete (ASC). Jonathan Harris: 5 ways to appeal to millennials online. Digital Natives and Immigrants. This page originally authored by Jennifer Hanson and Andrew Jevne (2009) This page was revised by Sandra Netzel (March 2010) This page was revised by Kiersten Walker (March 2014) This page was revised by Sarah Fedko (February 2015) A digital native refers to an individual who has grown up using technology and is considered a “native speaker” of electronic media's digital language.
Students who are labelled “digital natives” are said to have a “natural affinity with technology, and seemingly, are able to effortlessly adopt and adapt to change in the digital landscape” (Waycott, Bennett, Kennedy, Dalgarno, & Gray, 2010, p. 1202).

Connecting Disability with “Connected Learning” Last month, the Digital Media and Learning Research Hub, made possible by grants from the MacArthur Foundation, published a research report on the findings of the Connected Learning Research Network, a group led by scholars such as Mimi Ito, Sonia Livingstone, S. Craig Watkins, and Katie Salen. The Connected Learning Research Network, according to the report, is “an interdisciplinary collaboration among researchers, designers, and practitioners to advance an evidence-driven approach to learning, the design of learning environments, and educational reform that addresses contemporary problems of educational equity.”
The report summarized an international investigation into the ways that new media, embedded within a strong network of social relationships, can support young people’s interest-driven learning and direct that learning towards traditional educational, economic, and political opportunities. Augmentative and alternative communication devices as “new media” Conclusion.
Pro Video Coalition - Opportunities for Transmedia and Education by Laura Fleming. The education market in the United States has long been constrained by a combination of red tape and an almost complete absence of cohesive standards across the country. Producers of educational software and curricular content have had to deal with numerous guidelines across all 50 states and have therefore had to adjust their products to meet a bewildering array of requirements at local levels. It was simply not an attractive market to enter. Consequently, until very recently, the single most influential force in terms of impacting what is taught in school has been a small exclusive group of large book publishers, who have enjoyed long term deals with school systems across the country, and indeed across many parts of the world, for many years. The increasing pervasiveness of digital technologies of late, however, has started to level the playing field and has enabled a more grassroots approach to begin to encroach on the market.

Partners in Learning Ireland › Transmedia Storytelling. Resources — InfoSavvy 21. An Outstanding Free Literacy Resource Using Video. @derekrobertson's...: If Vygotsky played Minecraft... Last week my daughters were playing with their friends. As a group they were all working together to make a movie and their efforts were industrious, noisy and committed. I listened in on their chitter-chatter and I could hear them make the story up as they went along and as the story unfolded, and as great ideas sprung to mind, they shared and accommodated them and collectively created their masterpiece!
At one point there was a disagreement and so I, being the skilled adult who knows better, intervened and suggested that they storyboard their movie and plan it in advance. I mean, that’s how we make movies isn’t it, that is the received/perceived wisdom from the educated educator who thinks they are skilled in such matters? The reaction from them was thought provoking. A few months back I was dragged to the cinema by my youngest daughter to see The Lego Movie. But, the boy is discovered in the basement by his dad!
