This spotlight session will feature an overview of one public school district’s work to increased opportunities for students to participate in connected learning experiences. The presentation will showcase four projects that connect students, technology, and community members to make learning engaging and relevant. Examples include:
- a revenue-generating equine composting system,
- a student-designed high altitude balloon launch with video recording
- a Grade 3 PSA that raised awareness & took action to reduce marker landfill waste
- the Nipmuc 21C bi-annual event where students, teachers & community members collaborate to host interest-driven learning seminars.

Presenters will outline how connected learning shapes these and future projects. In closing, the session will highlight the Inspired Learning Project, an open web platform that connects educators via monthly Zoom sessions and a blog to share practices that have led to inspiring learning moments for students.
