Springfield Ohio was selected as one of eight new LRNG Cities in March, 2016. This means that youth aged 13-24 now can access anytime, anywhere learning opportunities linked to their interests -- and they can earn digital badges which validate and share their accomplishments.
LRNG is an online community that culminated from 10 years and $200 million of MacArthur Foundation's investment in 21st century education. In Springfield, our youth can choose local experiences and digital experiences created right here, by local organizations AND mix and match those experiences with digital experiences developed by other cities and by national partners including The GAP and EA Games.
We're proud to be among the cities pioneering this effort and we welcome your feedback and questions as our work continues. Visit LRNG Springfield or call Grant Thurman at 937-505-2998 for more information.
