Howard Gardner on Edutopia

This video of Howard Gardner on the Edutopia web site, came my way through the Diigo Literacy with ICT group. In the video, Dr. Garder discusses several questions:
1. What are specific ethical issues you see kids struggling when they use digital media?
2. How is our sense of identity changing in the digital world? How can adults learn from kids and guide them at the same time?
3. Digital tools make it extremely easy to communicate with anyone in the world. What are the opportunities and challenges for kids?
4. Do you think digital media are having a negative impact on kids' attention span? What are the implications for home and school?
5. How does teaching and learning change in a world where information is at your fingertips?
