What and When
Join us this Thursday at 10AM PST/1PM EST for a conversation about participatory learning and libraries at Connected Learning! We’ll be exploring how libraries can cultivate sites of participatory learning to disrupt what Paulo Freire calls the “banking system” of education; we’ll also discuss how to negotiate the tensions that can exist in participatory sites of culture. Full details of how to participate in this week’s conversation are available here! Be sure to check out the archives of previous webinars with Mimi Ito and Mitch Resnick here.
About Connected Learning
The Digital Media & Learning Research Hub is a non-profit research organization that nurtures exploration of—and builds evidence around—the impact of digital media on young peopleʼs learning and its potential for transforming education. We support emerging research on digital media and learning by hosting international conferences, facilitating workshops and working groups, and bringing together researchers, practitioners, policymakers, industry leaders and others working on related projects. The DML Research Hub is based at UC Irvine as part of the University of California Humanities Research Institute, and is supported by the MacArthur Foundation as part of Macarthur’s broader Digital Media and Learning Initiative.
