Family Engagement in Connected Learning
June 10, 2015 |
This interview with the Harvard Family Research Project explores the concept of connected learning. It’s the idea that learning—whether in school, in afterschool programs, in online communities, in peer groups, or with the family—is most powerful when it is connected across the different settings where students participate. In connected learning, supportive mentors and like-minded peers motivate students to follow their individual interests to promote the development of skilled, passionate, lifelong learners.
