Connected Consulting provides unparalleled expertise and experience in mobile learning, online learning and digital educational strategies for higher education. We work with international organizations, national ministries of education, state educational systems, and individual institutions to help transform learning through educational technology. We believe the power of educational technology is not in the technology, but in how educators use technology to transform the learning environment.
Connected Consulting is unique in that we utilize a team of highly accomplished educators who have not retired from educational practice, but continue to learn and grow in active educational settings. Educational transformation is not just something we think about, but something we do – daily. We are authors, researchers, administrators, theorists, and visionaries. In short, we are academics redefining academics.
