Today marks the announcement of the winners of the Trust Challenge. Here’s their description:
The Trust Challenge has awarded a total of $1.2 million to thirteen projects that will foster trust in online learning environments. Winning projects, evaluated by a panel of interdisciplinary thought leaders, were selected for their ability to advance trust, privacy, and equity in the context of the core values of connected learning, an approach to education in the 21st century that takes advantage of today’s abundance of information and social connection. The projects also tackle issues of access, management of data, and technical interoperability. Winners will receive between $35,000 and $150,000 each to develop their projects over the course of a year. Download the full press release.
