Innovative efforts are under way around the country to teach and engage students outside the traditional classroom using digital tools. These initiatives range from mobile gaming in after-school programs to high-tech public libraries that target youths. This growing interest comes hand in hand with discussions over whether the traditional definitions of schooling and learning need to change in the 21st century. Join two experts who will take a look at cutting-edge, on-the-ground examples of this work and the forces behind this emergent field.
Barry Joseph, director, Global Kids' Online Leadership Program
