Today will be the last installment of Spotlight’s newsletter. In
anticipation of new work on connected learning, Spotlight is ending daily

Spotlight will interview thought leaders to discuss how the field of
digital media and learning has grown and changed. We’ll also be working on
archiving the feature stories, blog posts and videos for future use. Please
see our related post <http://e2.ma/click/tesec/53746/929cr> below to learn
more about the transition and to view the range of topics Spotlight has
covered over the past six years.
All of us on the editorial team thank you for inspiring our coverage and
for being part of Spotlight’s community. As we bring six years of
conversation to a close, we want to hear from you. What have you learned?
What questions about digital media and learning remain unanswered? Feel
free to leave comments on the final
post<http://e2.ma/click/tesec/53746/pvadr>and to share with us your

look forward, as we know you do, to seeing how digital media and learning
will continue to influence education and policy in the years to come.
