A new report by the Consortium on Chicago School Research at the University of Chicago documents the opportunities and challenges of the first year of YOUMedia, a youth-centered digital learning space at the Chicago Public Library. It is the first in a series of research report designed to learn how this community evolves and whether youth involvement in the program impacts teen learning and development.
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.
