$2 Million Competition Opens for Ideas to Transform Learning
December 16, 2009 | From the field | Digital Media & Learning Competition

MacArthur, in collaboration with the University of California, Irvine, Duke University and the virtual network HASTAC, today launched the third annual open-call competition that will provide $2 million in awards to innovators shaping the field of digital media and learning. The competition seeks designers, inventors, entrepreneurs, researchers, and others to build digital experiences — the learning labs of the 21st century — that help young people interact, share, build, tinker, and explore in new and innovative ways. In a new component for 2010, Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) and Electronic Arts (EA), in cooperation with Entertainment Software Association and Information Technology Industry Council, will team with the competition to support the development of new science and math-related levels or adventures in popular existing games.
