The Internet is arguably the most potent force
for learning and innovation since the printing press.
The web is reshaping work, the economy, culture and everyday life,
just as books and the printed word did 500 years ago.

Yet, the opportunities of the web pose new and important
questions for parents, policy makers and entrepreneurs.
How can we re-imagine education in the Internet age so kids
can thrive in a safe environment?

We know that learning is greatly improved by the open and safe exchange of information online. At the same time, the internet poses concerns that challenge children, parents, educators, businesses and policy makers alike.

It's time we work together to identify new opportunities to improve online safety, innovation and learning on the web.

This is where you come in:

The Aspen Institute Task Force on Learning and the Internet is a conversation to review fresh data, listen to real stories and work directly with

to explore the challenges and opportunities of digital learning so we can find the best ways to keep our kids safe while giving them every chance to succeed.

What is this?

The Aspen Institute Task Force on Learning and the Internet is a national conversation led by 20 of the most innovative and talented minds in technology, public policy, education, business and online safety. The Task Force aims to better understand how we can optimize the web to improve learning.

Supported by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, this initiative is part of the Aspen Institute Communications and Society Program portfolio.

The Task Force will work in an open way by engaging with the public online to invite maximum input. Task Force Members themselves will discuss, collaborate and analyze extensive research to compile a report of their findings and recommendations in early 2014.
