connected learning alliance
The Connected Learning Alliance (CLA) envisions a world where all young people have equitable access to learning opportunities that are social, participatory, driven by personal needs and interests, and oriented toward educational, civic and economic opportunity. This is Connected Learning.
A growing groundswell of youth, parents, educators, organizations, activists, technology makers and policymakers is working toward a more equitable and meaningful learning approach keyed to today’s connected world. The CLA supports the expansion of this network through shared projects, partnerships and infrastructure that seek to make Connected Learning opportunities available to all young people.
The CLA is a project of the New Venture Fund.

connected courses 2014:
Connected Courses is a collaborative network of faculty in higher education developing online, open courses that embody the principles of connected learning and the values of the open web.
Our goal is to build an inclusive and expansive network of teachers, students, and educational offerings that makes high quality, meaningful, and socially connected learning available to everyone.
Our Course on Connected Courses
For Fall 2014, our major focus is on running a course for developing and teaching connected courses. The course is designed and taught by faculty from diverse institutions, some of whom are the folks behind successful connected courses such as FemTechNet, ds106, phonar, and the National Writing Project CLMOOC. You can find the syllabushere, and the people involved here.
In 2013, the DML Hub, as part of the MacArthur Foundation supported Digital Media and Learning Initiative, launched Reclaim Open Learning, an effort to explore the intersections between higher education, open learning, and the connected learning model in the midst of MOOC mania. The effort focused on returning to core pedagogical and learning principles, the ethos of the open web, and end-to-end faculty and student innovation when attention was shifting to large institutionalized initiatives and old-school top-down pedagogical and learning models. Activities included a hackathon at the MIT Media Lab, a faculty innovation competition, and event at UC Irvine.
