"The potential of cross-generational learning and connection unfolds when centered on common goals."
This is killer, however, seems quite unlikely as so many of those in the older generations are either computer illiterate or refuse to learn. Moving past that huge obstacle to most of the adult population, this is a gigantic step in the right direction.
"Connected learning prizes the learning that comes from actively producing, creating, experimenting, and designing because it promotes skills and dispositions for lifelong learning."
This style of learning, connected learning, helps students reach the ultimate goal of all schooling--application. Through actual production, design, etc. students can gauge not only their ability, but also their actual interest in a subject and field. Phenomenal.
"Connected learning environments link learning in school, home, and community"
The idea that students ought to/ can continue their learning in and outside of the classroom because of the ability to connect to what they're doing inside of school, outside of school.
