CLTR Symposium on Teaching and Learning Presents: Mizuko (Mimi) Ito
Please join us for a day with Mizuko (Mimi) Ito, Professor in Residence; John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation Chair in Digital Media and Learning at the University of California, Irvine
Summary: What kinds of pedagogical approaches, policies, and technologies can best connect between in-school and out-of-school learning and between adult and young people's social worlds? Professor Ito will describe her research on interest-driven and networked learning, and describe connected learning, an approach to realizing long standing progressive goals of education by leveraging today’s technology. Connected learning is when a young person is able to pursue a personal interest with the support of peers and caring adults, in a way that is directed to opportunity and achievement in school and the wider world.
