Edutopia's Digital Generation Project is the culmination of a yearlong investigation into the media-rich, networked lives of today's digital generation. The project, with support from MacArthur, created biographical video portraits of ten young people, with the aim of helping educators and parents understand how digital media are changing how this generation of young people create, collaborate, and teach. In addition to the video profiles, visitors to the project's website can explore links to each student's games, projects, websites, and video creations.
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.
