Connected Learning: Relevance, the 4th R from DML Research Hub on Vimeo.

On the one hand, some of this language feels a bit “overselling”.   On the other hand, how can we even imagine that we can teach marginalized kids all they’ll need to understand about the world in the relatively small spaces of classrooms that are walled off from that world?

Why wouldn’t we teach them to connect far beyond their own communities, as a routine element of their learning?

Thoughts?
