Digital Natives - Pew Internet Project

Don't miss the powerpoint presentation recently done by Lee Rainie 10-27-06 from the NY Library Council. This is a featured presentation from the Pew Internet and American Life Project.
"How today’s youth are different from their ‘digital immigrant’ elders and what that means for libraries". It includes recent statistics about technology use.

The Pew Internet project is a really informative piece about what young people are doing online right now. Read the sections on "Six New Realities of Digital Natives" and, in particular, the "10 Reasons Why the Future Belongs to Librarins." Also look at number 11--yet another good reason to have a quiet room!
