Thanks to everyone who participated in the MacArthur Foundation Online 
Forums.  We are now pleased to announce a real-time conversation hosted 
in Second Life!

*The Future of Digital Education*

How will higher education evolve to accommodate digital technologies in 
the classroom, changing sensibilities among students and new forms of 
knowledge, learning and expression?

This panel discussion will address some emerging challenges posed by the 
use of digital media, social networks and games within educational 
contexts. Panelists will speak from a wide range of recent experiences 
with teaching in virtual or hybrid learning environments and suggest 
strategies for the future.

Panelists include Rebecca Nesson of Harvard Law School, Douglas Thomas 
of USC's Annenberg School for Communication, Michael Eisenberg of the 
University of Washington Information School and Henry Lowood of Stanford 
University. The panel will be moderated by Steve Anderson of the USC 
School of Cinematic Arts. 
Please join us on Berkman Island in Second Life on November 13 at 4:00 
(PST/SLT). This panel is sponsored by the MacArthur Foundation's 
Initiative on Digital Media and Learning and generously hosted by 
Harvard Law School's Berkman Center for Internet & Society.   
Participation is limited to 45 audience members, so sign in early.
