As a hub for the Linked Learning movement, the Alliance offers research, stories, and tools that help people understand the impact of Linked Learning and implement this approach at high levels of quality.
This brief provides an overview of these two approaches and describe a framework for bringing the Linked Learning and community schools together at the high school level so that all students, particularly those in communities that have been historically marginalized, are on a path to postsecondary success.
This guidebook recognizes the unique expertise and experience of faculty and educational master candidates who have committed to the hard work of transforming the high school experience for students using the Linked Learning approach. The chapters in this guidebook provide a variety of insights from secondary and post-secondary educators involved in work associated with Linked Learning implementation.

A new analysis from The Linked Learning Alliance and The Alliance for Excellent Education shows that the students who could benefit the most from Linked Learning are also the least likely to have the internet & devices needed to experience it from home.
