Life As a “Digital Native”

Avoiding the “usual Powerpoint slides and a longwinded speech,” the keynote speaker at the National Educational Computing Conference (NECC) found “a whole new way to tell the story of education and youth media,” observes the Digital Divide Network. Deneen Frazier-Bowen “pulled an Anna Deveare Smith and performed a series of characters to help paint a portrait of what it’s like for today’s kids to be growing up as digital natives.” DDN offers free podcasts of the performance, too.
