Danah Boyd video

I’ve mentioned Danah Boyd before as one of the people I turn to when I want to understand how young people perceive the online world.

Here she is (video, needs broadband) talking off-the-cuff to a group of students. Most interesting to me is the home truths she has to tell about the historical function of formal education. Her context is the USA; I will leave it to you to decide how much that parallels the British experience.
