Digital Media and Learning Competition

Many of you know about this competition, but I want to make sure the word gets out, especially to our younger readers (18-25) who have some innovative ideas.  Awards range from $5,000 – $30,000 for young innovators, and $30,000 – $250,000 for large-scale projects.  You can check out last year’s winners here.  This year’s theme is “participatory learning” which should fit well with many of the projects that have been mentioned in the comments of this blog.

  1. Thank you for the post I never would have known about this. I would love to talk to you about my endeavor TEL.A.VISION and get any advice you may have about how to take this to the world. And if you get too many of these requests to answer mine I’ll understand.

    Fascinating stuff–thanks much for sharing this! FWIW, I think this link to 2007 winners may be more helpful than the one to the the press release that you provided. Note the “Tag Cloud” link on the right to see what themes were most prevalent (Collaboration and Youth were the top two):

    The subsequent time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this one. I mean, I do know it was my option to read, but I truly thought youd have one thing attention-grabbing to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that you would repair for those who werent too busy searching for attention.
