Documenting the Digital Generation

Henry Jenkins points to a great new project on his blog, Confessions of an Aca-Fan.
“The George Lucas Educational Foundation recently launched an exciting new website — Digital Generation — which offers a wealth of videos which will be relevant to anyone who wants to better understand the new media literacies, participatory culture, and young people’s online lives, themes which recur here with great frequency.”
Digital Generation
Watch the videos. I was enthralled.
Cool researcher interviews like the MacArthur Foundation’s Digital Media and Learning initiatives, including Katie Salen, Howard Gardner, Sasha Barab, John Palfrey, James Paul Gee, Henry Jenkins, and Mimi Ito.
Then there are the kids – It’s like watching a focus group behind the two-way mirror. Voyeuristic research.
