digital_nation - life on the virtual frontier

This Tuesday, February 2nd, at 8pm locally watch pbs' Frontline for the premiere broadcast of digital_nation - life on the virtual frontier OR view the program online. The series features "an in-depth exploration of what it means to be human in a 21st century digital world". Go online to investigate lesson plans, particiate in polls and contribute to the discussion on modules such as 21st century schools OR learning in virtual worlds.

As one expects from pbs and sponsors MacArthur Foundation and others, the quality is high and engaging. Explore the site for interviews with Stanford's Cliff Ness or Wired's Noah Shachtman; upload your own story; or view short clips on literacy, concentration, and games that teach. All of that is just in the "Learning" section! Several more broad topics are featured, including "Living Faster" and "Relationships".
