From 2011 through 2017, the MacArthur Connected Learning Research Network (CLRN) investigated the changing landscape of digital media and learning, and helped develop the connected learning model. This symposium commemorates this decade of interdisciplinary scholarship and the release of a revised framework that updates the one presented in the 2013 report, Connected Learning: An Agenda for Research and Design. The symposium will feature researchers representing a mix of perspectives and disciplines. It will recap the major research findings, and how the connected learning model has evolved. Then participants will then reflect on the biggest challenges and successes they encountered, and encouraged to share personal stories and reflections about what it has meant for them to participate in this extended and ambitious collaborative effort. Participants include: Mimi Ito, Sonia Livingstone, Josephina Chang-Order, Vera Michalchik, and Craig Watkins.
