Have you heard about the Digital Media and Learning Competition? (I hope this is the right forum for this.) They're giving awards to SPORE players to make adventures (as in: Galactic Adventures, natch) that advance "Participatory learning." You can win up to to $50,000! The first application deadline is Jan. 22nd, but all it requires is a 300-word summary, so if you have a good idea - pitch it! :nerd:

I'm pasting official information below. Check out http://www.dmlcompetition.net/game_changers.php to learn more.

2010 HASTAC/MacArthur Foundation Digital Media and Learning Competition

TIMELINE EXTENDED—-Application system to open January 15th


To allow applicants more time to develop their initial applications, the Competition timeline has been extended by one week. The online application system will now open and begin accepting applications on January 15th. The due date for preliminary applications has been extended until January 22nd, while resubmitted final first round applications (taking into consideration any public feedback/comments received) will be due by February 15th. Please reference the revised timeline here: http://www.dmlcompetition.net/timeline.php .

The theme of this year's Competition is Reimagining Learning and there are two types of awards: 21st Century Learning Lab Designers and Game Changers.

Aligned with National Lab Day as part of the White House's Educate to Innovate Initiative, the 21st Century Learning Lab Designer awards will range from $30,000-$200,000. Awards will be made 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.

The Game Changers category—undertaken in cooperation with Sony Computer Entertainment of America (SCEA) and Electronic Arts (EA), Entertainment Software Assocation, and the Information Technology Industry Council—will award amounts ranging from $5,000-$50,000 for creative levels designed with either LittleBigPlanet™ or Spore™ Galactic Adventures that offer young people engaging game play experiences and that incorporate and leverage principles of science, technology, engineering and math for learning.

Each category will include several Best in Class awards selected by expert judges, as well as a People’s Choice Award selected by the general public. The online application system will open on January 15 and will include three rounds of submissions, with public comment at each stage. Please see http://www.dmlcompetition.net for all details.
