TTKS Book CoverTeaching Tech-Savvy Kids: Bringing Digital Media into the Classroom was envisioned by the late Dr. Peter Lyman, UC Berkeley, one of the principal investigators on the three-year ethnographic project titled, Kids’ Informal Learning with Digital Media: An Ethnographic Investigation of Innovative Knowledge Cultures. He hoped to get the latest research on kids’ digital media practices into the hands of educators. His vision was about initiating a conversation; he wanted classroom teachers to be included in a discussion around learning, literacy, and knowledge creation and sharing in the 21st century. Because Dr. Lyman wanted to spark a conversation, I felt the book needed to be a collaboration between sociologists, anthropologists, educators, counselors, students, and specialists in the areas of new media and learning. Twenty-eight contributors helped me write this book. Also see:
