I think we may have finally gotten the requisite 20 up-votes for a group, so I've now got fingers crossed for a Connected Learning group here at Canvas. I think that could be such a great place to share and discuss articles and resources for connected learning!
And on that note, I wanted to share this April 4 announcement about UCI's Connected Learning Lab:
The University of California, Irvine, has launched the Connected Learning Lab, a new interdisciplinary hub dedicated to researching and putting into practice equitable learner-centered innovation in educational technology. Now sponsored by two schools at the university, the lab’s creation is a result of more than a decade of MacArthur support in the Digital Media and Learning Hub, and the research of the Connected Learning Research Network and the Youth and Participatory Politics Research Network. As part of the transition, the Learning Lab will host the annual Digital Media Learning Conference.
