Digital Natives and Their Customs

Digital Natives and Their Customs | Digital Literacy and Libraries | Scoop.it

FOR more than four decades, Arthur Levine has been exploring the psyche of college students, a quest that has led to three books on different generations' behaviors and beliefs. The latest, "Generation on a Tightrope: A Portrait of Today's College Student," written with Diane R. Dean, covers 2006 to 2011, distilling information from surveys and interviews with both undergraduates and student-affairs officials at 31 campuses nationwide.

Baby doesn't need tech to learn

Baby doesn't need tech to learn | Digital Literacy and Libraries | Scoop.it
Child developmental experts say that the new and disturbing trend of getting toddlers iPads to play with is likely to do more long term harm than good.
