Educators and researchers across the country are focusing on the best ways to engage students in learning in order to prepare them for college and a career. In an age where students are linked to technology through a variety of ways, educators need to find ways to connect students’ levels of engagement with technology to their academic achievement.

This webinar will focus on “connected learning,” which is a framework that draws on the power of technology to link young people’s interests, social networks, and academic achievement. Four experts—Mimi ItoCraig WatkinsElyse Eidman-Aadahl, and Katie Salen—will discuss the research, design, and implementation of connected learning.

Martens Roc will moderate the conversation and panelists will also address questions submitted by viewers from across the country.
