Connected Learning Certificate
Required Courses | Schedule | Scholarship Application
Are you ready for the year 2020?
Education as we know it is changing. By the year 2020:
- Teaching will be happening beyond just the physical schoolroom.
- Jobs in education will require knowledge in networking technologies.
- Teachers will need to be ‘educational designers,’ facilitators of connected learning experiences, and networked practitioners.
- Knowledge as we know it will change: Information is everywhere– makers and curators of information and networks will be the knowledge leaders.
The Connected Learning Certificate will prepare you for the future of education. Connected Learning is an interdisciplinary certificate program that provides learners with a theoretical framework for understanding connected learning along with practical methods for innovating, problem-solving, and engaging in connected, participatory learning experiences and environments using digital technologies and face-to-face networking strategies.
