The Aspen Institute announced the launch of the Aspen Institute Task Force on Learning and the Internet, a MacArthur-supported forum to understand how to improve online learning experiences and optimize them for safety and innovation. The task force is comprised of 20 thought leaders with diverse perspectives in learning, innovation, and safety. Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, co-chair of the Digital Learning Council, and Rosario Dawson, actress and co-founder of Voto Latino, are honorary co-chairs.
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.
