Selected from a pool of more than 1000 applications, the MacArthur Foundation and HASTAC announced awards of up to $238,000 for 17 projects that are expected to produce promising innovations in the use of digital media for learning. Awards were made in two categories: innovators building learning environments, and communicators of the field’s best new ideas. The competition is supported by a MacArthur grant to the University of California in collaboration with Duke University.
Digital Media & Learning
MacArthur is exploring how digital media are changing the way young people learn, play, socialize, and participate in civic life. The goal is to make education more powerful for all students by creating more opportunities for more youth to engage in learning that is relevant to their lives and prepares them for success in school, the workplace, and their community.
