INVITED YDME: On the Edge: Redesigning Learning

 

This panel is designed to illuminate some of the emergent challenges and opportunities connected to digital media, youth, and learning. As we begin to think with greater rigor about the role of technology in the education of young people how do social media technologies specifically, afford new ways to engage young learners? Moreover, how do young people’s digital media practices and peer-driven learning ecologies compel us to rethink what it means to be a learner in the digital age? This panel offers insights into designing learning futures.
