Here's an attempt to bring a more holistic vision of education to the national political agenda. 

what would an integrated national policy agenda for connected learning look like? IS this something the government can/should take up?

Hi Anya! I'm definitely not one to think that government is terrible and has no part in our lives, but I'd like to see the sparks of connected learning grow by themselves before our generally uneducated Congress (don't get me started) starts messing with it. I do love the idea of supporting the arts again (my mother was an art teacher). And I love the cartoon accompanying the story. In answer to your question, I would like to see support for the people who have actually been doing connected learning, rather than pouring money on anyone selected by congressional committee (although these folks certainly seem enlightened).

This paper , on a new definition of technological literacy , seems like an important complement to this conversation. 
The idea is to define technological literacy broadly, as a set of skills to think critically about how all tools can both help and hurt our bodies, our relationships, societies and the planet -- "technology as social ethics in action" and 
"nature as the ultimate source and setting for all our technologies"
