This report introduces connected learning, a promising educational approach supported by the MacArthur Foundation and the Digital Learning Media (DLM) initiative that schools and out-of-school sites are adopting to enhance student learning and outcomes by connecting their education to their interests.  Connected learning uses digital media to engage students’ interests and instill deeper learning skills, such as communication, collaboration, and critical thinking.
