We commissioned filmmaker Nic Askew to make a series of short films about connected learning, a new approach to learning he called “courageous” and “transformational.”
This film introduces the story of connected learning, the outcome of a six-year research effort supported by the MacArthur Foundation into how learning, education, and schooling could be reimagined for a networked world.
The film asks:
‘Might the information age have presented us with the opportunity for a fundamental reimagining of the way we educate our children?’
‘How might education come to life if children were to possess a burning need to know?’
‘Might we each have a part to play?’
‘Might this digital age hold the possibility of bringing us closer together?’
