The myths about youth and technology

The Berkman Center at Harvard has an interesting wiki discussion started concerning the myths about youth and their online presence: Digital Natives:

Myth #1: The online world presents a wholly new and completely different set of issues for youth we must address.

Many of the issues cropping up with children and young people playing, being, and living online – from cyberbullying, to information evaluation, to online civic engagement - are the same as age-old offli--e issues, however filtered through a new medium with new possibilities, and new considerations.

Good stuff! It sounds like the Berkman@10_conference is going to be really interesting. I wish I could be there-- but I've been way too busy. I do hope to attend some through their Web casts.

And yes, the wiki is yet another MediaWiki site.
