John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation Series on Digital Media and Learning

This series aims to close gaps in media literacies and participation skills and provide innovative ways of thinking about and using new forms of knowledge production, communication, and creative expression. The series is founded upon the working hypothesis that those immersed in new digital tools and networks are engaged in an unprecedented exploration of language, games, social interaction, problem solving, and self-directed activity that leads to diverse forms of learning. These diverse forms of learning are reflected in expressions of identity, how individuals express independence and creativity, and in their ability to learn, exercise judgment, and think systematically.
