A MacArthur funded study released today by the Consortium for School Networking (CoSN) found that school district administrators understand the significance of Web 2.0 for teaching and learning, but the actual use of Web 2.0 to improve the learning environment in U.S. schools is quite limited. The study, “Leadership for Web 2.0 in Education: Promise and Reality,” was produced to gain understanding of the beliefs, perspectives, and practices of administrators which are conducive to or constraining of effective use of Web 2.0.
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.
