J. 2009, Confronting the challenges Because learning is becoming globalised, educators are seeking to develop critical engagement, that is, a way of being in the world that involves intentionally engaging situations, dilemmas, and activities by leveraging disciplinary tools in order to resolve personally meaningful problems. To get a great understanding of what is possible, and the range of options open to educators, visit The Global Educator Case Studies being showcased by Julie Lindsay. Evolving technologies and globalisation of information, communication and access to each other presents educators with the challenge of creating learning experiences to help students develop competencies to enable them to function successfully in a dynamic global society. Connected learning as the art of digital scholarship helps bring minds closer to minds, and is a work in progress, building on existing models, ongoing experimentation, and dialogue with diverse stakeholders. Connected learning is not distinguished by a particular technology or platform, but is inspired by digital scholarship principles and design.
