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's grantmaking aims to determine how digital media are changing the way young people learn, play, socialize, and participate in civic life. Answers are critical to education and other social institutions that must meet the needs of this and future generations.
