Innovation in Participatory Learning

If you’ve been inspired by UK Youth Online to plan a project that pilots new models of online youth work or participatory learning through digital technology then you might like to check out the MacArthur/HASTAC Digital Media Learning competition.

The competition is offering between $30,000 and $250,000 for innovations in participative learning using digital technology. The deadline is tight (October 15th) but it would be great to see UK youth sector groups putting in proposals.

I would be happy to offer free support to any UK based groups thinking about putting in a bid – just drop me a line.

One thought on “Innovation in Participatory Learning”

  1. I’d been thinking about it – already registered with them but don’t know if I’ll have time to put something together before their deadline.

    Something to note for anyone that is going to submit – don’t get confused between their definition of ‘participatory learning’ and ‘youth participation’ – they’re different things.
