Many educators agree: our education system needs an update. Too many youth see no clear connection between school and life beyond the classroom. Moreover, the skills most needed to succeed in the modern age - such as critical thinking, problem solving, and communication - are not easily measured on a standardized test.
Connected Learning revitalizes the educational process by forging links between students' academic studies, their personal passions, and opportunities to engage with peers who support and share their interests. As a result, Connected Learning can create new pathways to college, career and civic pursuits.
