A learning approach designed for our times
Introduction
The Connected Learning Alliance is an technology-related startup, spun out of the Digital Media & Learning Research Hub, dedicated to spreading & scaling the implementation of Connected Learning.

Connected Learning is realized when a young person is able to pursue a personal interest of passion with the support of friends & caring adults, and is--in turn--able to link this learning & interest to academics, career success, or civic engagement.
