When students arrive in the 6th grade a computer generated schedule will place them at a starting point that will then rotate through various Connection classes through their 7th grade year. At the end of 7th grade, students will then be able to request the Connections Classes for their 8th grade year.

We are currently in the sixth year of the Connections program at East Lyme Middle School. Connections is an advisory program aimed at fostering a sense of belonging for each student at the middle school and providing an opportunity to connect and interact with adults and peers in a way that they may not otherwise.
The Connections groups are small- 11-13 students per adult- allowing the students a chance to get to know each other and giving them opportunities to voice their opinions and ideas in a small group setting. Hopefully, each student will also connect with an adult in the building that they can feel comfortable with.

Microsoft Partners in Learning (PiL) – New South Wales Connected Learning Schools Project : a collaboration between Microsoft, NSW DET, dk2 and ACER
In 2006, one school team from each of the ten NSW Department of Education regions were nominated to participate in the Microsoft Partners in Learning (PiL) Connected Learning Schools Project. With reference to their unique context, each school developed and implemented a project that involved teachers using Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in their teaching and learning to engage middle-year students in their education, and to connect more authentically with students’ learning experiences outside of school. The NSW Partners in Learning project was a research and development project. The aim was to investigate how children in the middle years (Years 5 to 9) can shape their own learning. It sought to bridge the disconnect between ICT used at home and in school. Between 2006 and 2008 the ten teams of schools implemented their projects with a view to enhancing students’ engagement, pedagogy and teacher capacity. The project was evaluated by ACER using 2006 and 2008 surveys that identified the extent to which digital technologies helped students engage with school.
