Ten winners of the MacArthur Digital Media and Learning Competition were announced today in conjunction with the celebration of National Lab Day in Washington, DC, to promote math and science education across the country. The winners will share $1.7 million to use games, mobile phone applications, virtual worlds, and social networks to create the learning labs of the 21st century.
Funded by MacArthur and administered by the virtual network of learning institutions HASTAC, the competition winners include a project to show youth-produced videos on 2,200 Los Angeles city buses; the next generation of a graphical programming language that allows young people to create their own interactive stories, games, and animations; and an online game that teaches kids the environmental impact of their personal choices.
