1. Education Grants from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation- Grantmaking in education seeks primarily to gain a better understanding of how digital technologies are changing how young people learn, play, socialize, exercise judgment, and engage in civic life. Grantmaking also is exploring how learning environments “peers, family and social institutions (such as schools)” may be changing as well. Through answers to these questions, and the policy responses to them, the Foundation seeks to help build the interdisciplinary, cross-sector field of digital media and learning.
