Connected learning emphasizes the significance of youth learning through engagement with personally meaningful content and digital technologies while supported by a network of peers, teachers, and families across settings. Western schooling often limits opportunities for intergenerational learning, yet it was the primary way through which learning occurred prior to the introduction of formal schooling. We are just beginning to understand the role of digital media in family learning, especially for non-dominant families. This session brings together scholars studying intergenerational learning across school and out-of-school contexts. It is broadly guided by the following research questions: (1) How can we engage families in learning together? (2) What activities, strategies, and tools are promising for engaging families in intergenerational learning? Participants will share their research through a structured poster session format and demonstrate a tool or activity from their research.
