The single most important characteristic of the Internet is its capacity for world-wide community and the limitless exchange of ideas, according to a report that delves into the past, present, and future implications of an increasingly digitized world for learning institutions. The report, which is part of a series on digital media and learning published by MIT Press and supported by MacArthur, contends that future learning institutions should be virtually enabled and enhanced to take full advantage of what the internet has to offer for young people and educators.
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.
