In this session, leaders of out-of-school programs across the country will describe best practices and ways to deeply integrate digital media and learning in community-based learning experiences. The organizations in this session were funded by the Susan Crown Exchange, Digital Learning Challenge, and collaborated to develop a field-facing resource https://digitallearningpractices.org/. Educators and leaders from The Knowledge House, West Michigan Center for Arts & Technology, YOUMedia at Chicago Public Libraries, Free Spirit Media, and the Beam Center will share some of the ways that digital media based learning is deeply embedded in programs that engage youth in computer science, media arts, media production and journalism, making, and engineering.
