A interdisciplinary research network dedicated to researching and reimagining learning for the 21st century. I and other members of the network are working to understand the opportunities and risks for learning afforded by today’s changing media ecology, as well as building new learning environments that support effective learning and educational equity.
Our work cuts across research, design, and practice and includes social scientists, learning theorists, educators, and designers. We are committed to research that is collaborative, action-oriented, and united by educational values of equity, social connection, and full participation.
The network focuses on a model of connected learning — learning that is socially connected, interest-driven, and oriented towards educational opportunity. Started in 2007, the network was funded by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.
