Double Feature: HLS Library Director John Palfrey on Digital Natives

HLS Library Director John Palfrey is featured in two recent interviews talking about his work studying how young people use technology and information.

The first, with the Urbanite of Baltimore, included a wide-ranging conversation about understanding wired kids, innovation and entrepreneurship by and for them, creativity, privacy, and digital skills.

Speaking to Project Information Literacy, John focused on privacy, piracy, and plagiarism. Areas explored include the intersection of school assignments with remix culture, which educators could use in discussions with students about where riffing ends and ripping off begins in the academic world, and how to deal with the new rivers of information that deluge us all.
