Video Interview with Mizuko Ito

 

1.7.10 | Over at Smart Mobs, Howard Rheingold has posted a video interview with Mizuko Ito, a cultural anthropologist studying how young people use digital media. Ito is the author of “Engineering Play: A Cultural History of Children’s Software” and a contributor to the book “Hanging Out, Messing Around, and Geeking Out: Kids Living and Learning with New Media.”

In this segment, the first of three parts, she talks about varying levels of engagement among young people and the challenges parents and educators face in building links between what students are learning in school and the media skills they’re developing on their own.
