November 23rd, 2008

The final report of the research project: Digital Youth Research | Kids’ Informal Learning with Digital Media, was formally released last night at a reception sponsored by the  American Anthropological Association in San Fransisco.  Dr. Mizuko “Mimi” Ito and her research team, spent the past three years examining the impact of digital media on youth to discover how youth are living and learning with new media.

“Kids’ Informal Learning with Digital Media: An Ethnographic Investigation of Innovative Knowledge Cultures” is a three-year collaborative project funded by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation. Carried out by researchers at the University of Southern California and University of California, Berkeley, the digital youth project explores how kids use digital media in their everyday lives.
