Education, Social Media, and Ethics: Howard Gardner - 1 views

  •  
    Gardner tells us that what is unique about digital media and our era is that you can be as young as 7 or 8 and participate ... in some kind of a social network site or game and you are in touch potentially with thousands and thousands of other people. So the former lag between behaving morally toward people you know and behaving ethically toward people in the community who you don't know - that's been lost.

Hanging Out, Messing Around, and Geeking Out: Kids Living and Learning with New Media - 1 views

  •  
    Conventional wisdom about young people's use of digital technology often equates generational identity with technology identity: today's teens seem constantly plugged in to video games, social networks sites, and text messaging. Yet there is little actual research that investigates the intricate dynamics of youth's social and recreational use of digital media. Hanging Out, Messing Around, and Geeking Out fills this gap, reporting on an ambitious three-year ethnographic investigation into how young people are living and learning with new media in varied settings-at home, in after school programs, and in online spaces.

Media Education for the 21st Century [PDF] - 0 views

  •
