The Digital Media & Learning Research Hub is a non-profit research organization that nurtures exploration of—and builds evidence around—the impact of digital media on young peopleʼs learning and its potential for transforming education. We support emerging research on digital media and learning by hosting international conferences, facilitating workshops and working groups, and bringing together researchers, practitioners, policymakers, industry leaders and others working on related projects. The DML Research Hub is based at UC Irvine as part of the University of California Humanities Research Institute, and is supported by the MacArthur Foundation as part of MacArthur’s broader Digital Media and Learning Initiative.
The Connected Learning Alliance (CLA) is a startup project spinning out of the DML Research Hub, dedicated to advancing the spread and scale of connected learning, as well as supporting individuals' and institutions' adoption of connected learning. The CLA is based in Santa Monica, CA and is also supported by the MacArthur Foundation as part of MacArthur’s broader Digital Media and Learning Initiative.
