The YOUmedia Network Toolkit is a website resource that helps organizers plan, build, and sustain digital learning labs inspired by YOUmedia, the teen learning space in Chicago's Harold Washington Library Center. MacArthur, in conjunction with the Pearson Foundation and the Institute of Museum and Library Services, has supported the expansion of the digital learning labs to other libraries and museums around the country.
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.
