Who

ConnectEd supports educators to implement Linked Learning across California and the nation, with great tools, coaching, networks and technical assistance to expand high-quality pathways. Linked Learning transforms students' high school experience by bringing together strong academics, demanding technical education, and real world experience that helps students gain an advantage in college, career and life.

Why

We created ConnectEd Studios to provide teachers and educators with a safe and secure online platform that allows them to "power up" and engage today’s generation of "digital natives" through relevant, rigorous, and applied learning. Students benefit by having a central and persistent digital repository for their work that over time demonstrates they are prepared for success in college, career, and life. Studios is the online home for tools, resources, promising practices, and for teacher and industry partner networks.

How

Anyone can register on ConnectEd Studios as a guest, but use of the full platform requires approved access. It's easy to set up an organizational account at any level for districts, counties, schools, or pathways. In order for students to create accounts on ConnectEd Studios, the district needs to first sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) committing to the collection of parental release forms for each student in order to ensure FERPA compliance.
