Global Teacher Finalist 2018, Barbara Zielonka, was sharing with hundrED about her use of connections-based learning in the article: Connections-Based Learning Should Be The Future Of Education. hundrED searches out education innovations and establishes 100 innovations to highlight each year. hundrED declared, "Connections-based learning is one of the most useful tools a teacher has at their disposal, but many feel they don’t have the time to utilize it – or don’t realize that they could!"
Connections-based learning is an approach to teaching and learning that leverages the connected world we live in. It's about changing the question from "How can we learn this?" to "Who can we engage as we learn?" With connections-based learning, making meaningful connections drives the learning activities.
Developing connections is beneficial for kindergarten students all the way through higher education. Using the tools available in this 21st century, rich learning experiences can be forged through a simple process that gives the onus of learning back to the students.
Finding needs, hearing stories, addressing inequalities: students must have an opportunity to not only hear from their world, but speak into it.
Connections-based learning guides that process.
