Visiting Washington, D.C.
Session Type: Symposium
Funders, policymakers, and designers are increasingly interested in spreading new instructional approaches to larger numbers of youth and adults in in-school and out-of-school settings. Most existing scholarship on scale-up comes from the pre-digital age. Contemporary digital technologies, particularly those powered by the Internet, have changed the equation substantially. Digital innovations often reimagine how learning occurs, requiring new capacities for adults who use them with children. Technological advances have created alternative pathways for scale-up. This session gathers scholars of learning sciences, digital media, policy, and organizational theory to share new theoretical and methodological approaches to investigate scale-up of digital learning technologies. Taken together, the papers capture the state of the field and create an agenda for future research.
