66.070 - Connected Learning in Teacher Education

Mon, April 8, 2:15 to 3:45pm, Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel, Floor: Lower Concourse, Sheraton Hall E

Session Type: Structured Poster Session


Connected learning seeks to harness new media technologies and human networks to support interest-driven, production-centered learning that bridges in- and out-of-school and intergenerational disconnects. This structured poster symposium showcases contemporary research from the Connected Learning in Teacher Education (CLinTE) network. It brings together scholar-educators from over 15 institutions across the country who are at the forefront of an emerging pedagogy of connected teaching. The session papers explore: the role and reach of connected learning, connected learning in teacher education, educators’ connected learning online, and connected learning in community. The CLinTE model is an exemplar of interdisciplinary, media-rich, collaborative work oriented toward transformation, and this symposium contributes to a theorization of teaching at the intersections of media, culture, and learning.
