Steve Hargadon has a fascinating interview with Anastasia Goodstein, author of Totally Wired: What Teens and Tweens Are Really Doing Online. In the podcast, Anastasia talks about what teens/tweens are doing online and how the and the always-on digital lifestyles of today's Gen Y teen.
Anastasia talks about how teens are using technology and social media in their "real life" versus the way they are using (or not) using technology in the classroom.
She also stresses the need for educators (and parents) to provide students with the skills they need to assess the onslaught of information and ability to evaluate the credibility of resources on the web.
Anastasia has a wealth of information on the wired lives of teens. Anyone who works with youth should listen to this podcast. And thanks to Steve for conducting such a great interview!
