Become-a-Connected-Learner.png What is it?

Connected Learning is a program that allows young people to document their learning outside the classroom and apply their love of technology by collecting electronic “badges”
to store in an electronic “backpack.”

How You Do it?

Visit one of the partner organizations, engage in activities, and apply what you learn on-site or at home. There are three different badge levels: Discovery, Guided Work, and Independent Work.
