The Chicago Tribune looks at plans for ChicagoQuest, a new MacArthur-supported charter school with a curriculum based on the principles of game design and collaborative learning. Located in Chicago’s Near North neighborhood, ChicagoQuest is modeled on the Quest to Learn public school in New York City, which is also supported by the Foundation.
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.
