Learners’ Perspective on Digital Learning Resources

In order to capture the learners’ perspective on digital learning resources, the Youth and Media team asked young people to tell their own stories about technology and education. They use everything from cell phones, YouTube, and Wikipedia to learn about topics ranging from biology to dance and art history to guinea pigs. What’s more, these young learners are also teachers, using digital media to share their knowledge and skills with peers near and far. Interviewees include young people from middle school to college aged from the Boston/Cambridge area. Some of the young people appearing in this video are Youth Ambassadors at the Youth and Media Lab.
