Hello Global Education Collaborative, It is so fantastic to see all the great work being done on this site and all the interesting projects in which everyone is involved! I want to make sure that you all know about this year's $2M 2008 HASTAC/MacArthur Digital Media and Learning Competition. The theme this year is participatory learning, which sounds exactly like what most of these projects are going for! Participatory learning is defined broadly as using new digital media for sharing ideas or planning, designing, implementing, or just discussing ideas and goals together. I have posted the rfp below. I hope all of you with appropriate projects will consider applying and I hope that you will help us get the word out to other interested parties by forwarding it along. This year we are awarding projects in two categories, Innovation in Participatory Learning and Young Innovators. The Young Innovator award is targeted to individuals aged 18-25. We want to help take their wow idea from garage to implementation. If you know of any particularly stellar current or former students, please make sure they get the rfp. The Innovation award is for larger scale projects and has no age restriction. This year we are piloting limited international eligibility (hoping to open it further next year) and can accept stand alone applications from twelve countries (U.S., UK, Japan, Mexico, China, Russia, Singapore, Japan, Canada, Nigeria, South Africa, the Netherlands); application teams and collaborators can be from anywhere in the world.
