Digital Media and Learning Research Hub recently released its
99-page report, Connected Learning: An Agenda for Research and Design. Written by members of the Connected Learning Research Network, led by Mimi Ito, it pulls together ongoing research, design, and implementation of connected learning and will be the first of ten in a new series on connected learning.
The report “offers a design and reform agenda, grounded in a rich
understanding of child development and learning, to promote and test
connected learning theories.” It provides some useful constructs and language for making the case for making in the classroom.
