Sunday, June 29, 10:30am – 12:00pm, Las Vegas Convention Center, Rooms N255/257
Connected Learning is an exciting educational approach that is attracting increasing attention from educators, librarians, foundations, and governments. It makes learning relevant to all populations, to real life and real work, and to the realities of the digital age where the demand for learning never stops. Join Kylie Peppler, Advisor to the Connected Learning Research Network, to learn more about the connected learning approach, underlying research, and how it can be successfully leveraged in the design of library spaces and programming targeted at today’s youth.
