Katie Salen, executive director of nonprofit design studio Institute of Play, offers a look inside the ground-breaking school in New York City that she co-founded, Quest to Learn, the nation's first public school based on the principles of game design. The school uses these core principles as a framework to help students become lifelong learners and design thinkers. MacArthur Foundation's grantmaking aims at determining how digital media are changing the way young people learn, play, socialize, and participate in civic life. Answers are critical to education and other social institutions that must meet the needs of this and future generations.
