Digital Media: New Learners of the 21st Century

I found the excerpt on the Quest 2 Learn school very interesting. When they first started explaining the school I thought it was just some New-Age feel-goodery schools (Arrested Development reference, anyone?) But after they mentioned that the school follows the New York public school requirements I became curious to see just how affective this school really is.

After a little research I found a study published out of Florida State University (with assistance from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation so maybe a bit biased towards technology) found that students at Q2L show substantial systems thinking skills increases as well as modest time management and teamwork skills increases.
