2020-06-10T08:39:00+00:00May 25th, 2020|Tags: , , , |

En aquesta infografia, l'equip d'Educació 360, reprenent la proposta de Connected Learning Network, ens expliquen com l’aprenentatge pot canviar la trajectòria de vida d’una persona quan es combinem els interessos personals, les oportunitats educatives dins la pròpia comunitat i els espais de suport entre iguals i amb adults. L’aprenentatge connectat és un model adreçat als joves, on els mitjans digitals tenen un paper clau. Un dels seus principals beneficis és que contribueix a l’equitat en l’accés als aprenentatges dels nois i noies. La Connected Learning Alliance n’explica els objectius, beneficis i impacte.

2020-04-11T15:55:30+00:00April 6th, 2020|Tags: , , |

This article considers how after-school digital media clubs, as an example of informal learning, can provide meaningful opportunities for youth to participate in the creation of interest-driven learning ecologies through media production. Ethnographic research was conducted in two after-school digital media clubs at a large, ethnically diverse, low income public high school over the course of an academic year. The after-school clubs provided students with opportunities to develop digital literacies that could be leveraged for the acquisition of cultural and social capital.  Although participation in the clubs expanded students’ offline social networks, restrictive school policies blocked access to social media and [...]
