Our friends down the street at MIT's Project New Media Literacies (NML) are holding a conference in Cambridge this Saturday, May 2: Learning in a Participatory Culture. The day's workshops will delve into the future of education -- from research to strategies to exhibits -- and NML will unveil their new "web-based learning environment," the Learning Library.

The conference will be webcast live for those unable to attend in person. Here is the schedule with webcast links.

For those unable to attend or tune into the webcast, check out the latest issue of Threshold: Exploring the Future of Education, which was produced in partnership with NML and, like the conference, is focused on Learning in a Participatory Culture. (Our own John Palfrey participated in the forum piece of the issue with Benjamin Stokes, Henry Jenkins, Daniel T. Hickey, and Barry Joseph.)
