Today’s social, mobile and gaming technologies offer new ways of supporting learning that is engaging, connected to the wider world, and tailored to specific interests, identities, and learning styles. Our research has found, however, that only the most activated digital learners are taking advantage of this potential. Young people are going online for informal and interest-driven learning, but with few connections back to school and academic subjects. What kinds of platforms, policies, and technologies can best connect between in-school and out-of-school learning and between adult and young people's social and cultural worlds? Mimi Ito will describe her ongoing research on interest-driven and digitally enabled learning, and describe connected learning, as a framework for how to best support learning in a digitally connected era.
