Reimagine Learning for a Digital Nation: Competition Reopens
Our big news is that, later today, we will not only begin accepting revisions and resubmissions of original applications submitted to our "Reimagining Learning" 3rd Annual Digital Media and Learning Competition, we will also be accepting NEW applications. Here's the url for the site and you can find the application form, the rules, and the timeline once you get there: http://dmlcompetition.net/
It was part of the design of the Competition from the beginning that applications would appear on line, that applicants would have the opportunity to solicit feedback, and then all applicants would be required to resubmit their proposals--either without a single change or revised as much as you want or even with new collaborators and partners. That process begins today, too. It has been so exciting to witness exciting participation by many hundreds of people in the Public Commenting.
Additionally, because we've heard from so many people who missed the deadline but who felt inspired by the Competition, we're reopening the competition and accepting new applications too. Of course, this means the new applicants won't be able to profit from the energetic public commenting period that the original applicants did but, you cannot complain (really, you cannot!), when you've just been given a chance to compete. Go for it!
NB: Originally this post took a side-turn and included a response to the PBS documentary "Digital Nation." That was confusing people so I've now spun that out into its own post: http://www.hastac.org/blogs/cathy-davidson/digital-nation-writes-back
