The infographic.

Connections-based Learning sees the importance of students making real-life connections with both the local community and the globe.  The CBL infographic reminds us that as we make connections with other classes, the community, experts, and organizations to help and to learn from, we collaborate together for positive change.  Throughout this process, cultivating a helping relationship keeps us focused on why we do what we do.


The story.

Connections-based Learning focuses on students making meaningful connections with teachers, experts, organizations, their community and each other. The development of this approach has been birthed out of a desire to create learning experiences in a connected world with connected students.

This video shares the Connections-based Learning approach.


Learning in a connected world.

Connections-based Learning is an approach to teaching and learning that leverages the connected world we live in. It's about changing the question from "How can we learn this?" to "Who will engage with us in learning?". With Connections-based Learning, making meaningful connections drives the learning activities.

Developing connections is beneficial for kindergarten students all the way through higher education. Using the tools available in this 21st century, rich learning experiences can be forged through a simple process that gives the onus of learning back to the students.
We have a wide array of resources to help you get started. Connections-based Learning is only a click away.
