We're excited to kick off our July webinar series, Learning and Leading in a Connected World! We've partnered with Educator Innovator, National Writing Project, and EdConteXts to explore themes related to #CLMOOC (going on now) and #connectedlearning .

I have been in higher ed for over 20 years and I'm somewhat disillusioned when I think about the need to improve the way we provide affordable college access and foster student success particularly for students of color and first-generation college students. However, I'm optimistic and excited about the prospect of badging and connected learning as vehicles for helping young people and lifelong learners with alternative credentials. I'm pressed to learn more about Cities of Learning and Digital Learning Opportunities and Badging, particularly for youth from under-resourced communities and youth of color.
Connected Learning is when you’re pursuing expertise around something you care deeply about, and you’re supported by friends and institutions who share & recognize your passion. Together, we can all take steps to make learning relevant for youth.
This Community is a welcoming space where learners of all ages can share their Connected Learning experiences, challenges, and thoughts.

Sometimes it can be nice to reflect on the insights contained in the CLTV archives! Feel free to watch this webinar on Do-It-Yourself Badges and chat with the #connectedlearning hashtag at 4:00 pm PT next Tuesday June, 30th. Video and more info at the link.
