  11. 11. Connected Learning Learner Interests Academic “Connected learning, as its name implies, works to connect these spheres more purposefully. The goal is not to fully integrate these spheres of learning—each requires its own autonomous space—but to build connections, hand-offs, and sites of translation in order to reach more young people where they are. By giving equal weight to all of these different sites of learning, we can create more entry points and diversify the pathways towards learning and opportunity” (65).

  31. 31. What are innovation hubs? Hubs are collaborative cross-departmental groups in which librarians and faculty come together on common themes of strategic importance. Hubs act as a “research and development lab” to explore, imagine, and brainstorm new roles and activities for the Media Center and deeper understandings about NHS in teaching, learning, and service. “strike force” They also are a that implements, supports, and assesses emerging library roles and activities as well as teacher initiated projects and strategies.
