We commissioned filmmaker Nic Askew (soulbiographies.com/) to make a series of films about connected learning, an approach to learning designed for our times.
This film introduces the thinking behind connected learning, which builds on the basics to make learning more relevant. It connects learning to people's interests, to real life, real work, real communities, and to the demands and opportunities of the digital age.
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?'
