Open Networks for Social and Connected Learning - Sponsored by Accenture

Wednesday, October 16 | 11:30AM–12:20PM | Ballroom C
Session Type: E13

Today's online world offers new opportunities for demand-driven and socially connected learning, but only the most activated digital learners are taking advantage of this potential. Our research found very few connections between young people's informal and interest-driven learning and the classroom. We are all struggling to adapt to the new realities of a world of social media and free-flowing information. How can we best guide, mentor, teach, and coach young people in an era of abundant information and social connection? What kinds of platforms, policies, and technologies can best connect the classroom to the wider world of learning?


Join us for an extra 30 minutes in the 3rd floor foyer for an opportunity to continue the conversation immediately following this session.
