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.

Initiative on Digital Media and Learning and generously hosted by
Harvard Law School's Berkman Center for Internet & Society.
