“We are witnessing the profound transformation in how young people will be learning in the future, and these projects are helping to lead the way,” Goldberg said.
Competition winners were drawn from two categories: 21st Century Learning Lab Designers ($30,000 to $200,000) and Game Changers ($5,000 to $50,000). Learning Lab Designer award winners will share $1.7 million for learning environments and digital media-based experiences that allow young people to grapple with social challenges through activities based on the social nature, contexts, and ideas of science, technology, engineering, and math.
Game Changers awards, which are to be announced on May 25th, will share $250,000 for creative levels designed with either LittleBigPlanet or Spore Galactic Adventures. The games offer young people learning opportunities as well as engaging play. Each category includes several Best in Class awards selected by expert judges, as well as a People’s Choice Award to be selected by the general public in late May.
