HASTAC and the MacArthur Foundation are excited to launch the third year of the Digital Media and Learning Competition.

They are reimagining learning on a daily basis and are engaged in what is called “participatory learning.” The 2010 Digital Media and Learning Competition challenges designers, entrepreneurs, practitioners, researchers, and young people to put participatory learning to work on behalf of science, technology, engineering, math and their social contexts in the 21st century.
