How are contemporary structures of opportunity changing, and what skills and dispositions are needed to expand paths to opportunity?

On Thursday, May 28 from noon-1:00pm PT (3:00-4:00pm ET), S. Craig Watkins, Ben Kirshner and Rafi Santo conversed about their research on the “last mile” and young people’s transition to opportunity (and persisting barriers to it) in the context of a changing knowledge economy, precarious labor, rapid technological transformation, and increasing inequality.

This webinar was part of a May 2015 series titled Equity by Design: A DML 2015 Showcase, in which themes from the 2015 Digital Media and Learning conference were highlighted. Check out all the details at http://bit.ly/CLTVDML2015
