The list of projects emcompassed by the foundation's new 'non-profit' is interesting. The first project inherits work from the 'Cities of Learning' project. LRNG  “is creating a 21st century ecosystem of learning that combines in-school, out-of-school, work-based, and online learning opportunities that are visible and accessible to all.” Other projects reflect other MacArthur interests. They include " Open Badges, developed in partnership with the Mozilla Foundation to create digital credentials, and Educator Innovator, an online community for teachers to learn and explore new ideas."
