Suggested by Mandy Dailey

Event: Digital Media and Learning Competition 2008 (Website)

Organised By:
HASTAC and MacArthur Foundation

Key Dates:
Deadline for Applications: October 15, 2008

For Whom:
For Innovation in Participatory Learning awards, primary applicants must be at least 18 years of age when the application is submitted

For Young Innovator awards, applicants must be between the ages of 18 and 25 at the time of application.

The second HASTAC/MacArthur Digital Media and Learning Competition is now open! The second (2008) Competition similarly seeks to mobilize the field of Digital Media and Learning through a $2 million open call, supporting learning entrepreneurs, educators, communicators, and innovators. The Competition supports pioneers who use new technologies to envision the future of participatory learning.

The theme for this year’s Competition is Participatory Learning. Awards will be made in two categories: Innovation in Participatory Learning, and Young Innovators, a special category designed to promote the contributions of 18-25-year-old innovators to digital media and learning.

Innovation in Participatory Learning Awards:
Innovation in Participatory Learning awards are designed to support the most promising and dynamic projects that enable and enhance innovative participatory learning. These pioneering projects will demonstrate new modes of participatory learning in a variety of environments, by creating new digital tools, modifying existing ones, or using digital media in some other novel way.

Young Innovators Awards:
Young Innovator awards are targeted specifically to innovators aged 18-25. These awards will support smaller-scale, forward-thinking, conceptually exciting and original participatory learning projects.
