Enhancing Bridge Programs to Increase College Access and Success

Nearly 20 percent of high school freshmen do not graduate, and many of those who do graduate are underprepared for a labor market that increasingly prizes specialized training and college education. Promising bridge programs that help students access and persist into college provide important lessons on designing stronger pathways to postsecondary education. How do effective bridge programs prepare students, particularly underserved youth, for the rigor of a higher education?

Beyond the Field Trip: Connected Learning in Museum Spaces

This Google Hangout will explore how museums are going beyond the field trip to become hubs of learning, innovation, and creativity. The American Museum of Natural History in New York City is at the forefront of this work, where Barry Joseph is working with young people to build video games to complement new exhibits, using Minecraft as a springboard to science, and creating other learning opportunities that encourage students to explore their interests. In an interview with Tom Murray, Mr. Joseph will provide his perspective on ways learning can take place in museums and other out-of-school places, and share how educators can both integrate museum resources into their teaching and be inspired to try approaches in their own classrooms. Mr. Murray will also solicit questions from the audience and share his own perspective.

Transforming Spaces to Transform Learning: Connected Learning in Action

Elizabeth Forward School District (EFSD), outside of Pittsburgh, has undertaken this transformation inspired by the YOUmedia work of the MacArthur Foundation, and is the first district to provide such space in a public school. Students are able to use innovative technologies to explore their interests, create, and connect their experience to what they are doing in the classroom. EFSD also has a Simulated Multimedia Arts Learning Lab, or SMALLab, which creates a kinesthetic learning environment that supports full-body games and new ways to experience abstract concepts. The school also incorporates game design into the curriculum to support STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) outcomes.
