The Connected Learning Initiative in India
Kirky DeLong, Eric Klopfer, Vijay Kumar, Judy Perry

The Connected Learning Initiative (CLIx) is an innovative collaboration led by the Tata Trusts, the Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) that is built upon the theme of connection—connecting students and teachers to authentic learning experiences and contemporary teaching and learning practices, connecting teachers with teachers in learning communities, and connecting technology enabled curriculum with the infrastructure in schools and states. CLIx addresses three intersecting lenses simultaneously across four independent states within India in grades 8 and 9: the design, development and delivery of connected OER learning experiences (along with open source tools and platforms); a systematic process of implementing a large-scale educational innovation across states and schools; and professional development to transform teacher practice.
