Another Radio Segment

Hi All!!

Well, it seems to be my job on this blog to direct you to NPR segments. This one comes from WAMU's Kojo Nnamdi Show. On today's Tech Tuesday there is a segment that deals with children and how they interact with technology. One of the commentators is the head of the Human Computer Interaction (HCI) Lab at the University of Maryland.

As Librarians, specifically dealing with technology, it is important for us to understand how different generations interact with technology. This means not only understanding how younger children change interaction patters, but also how older generations want to approach technology.

Ok, enough lecturing from my soap box.

Here is the synopsis of the segment:

Kids today rarely think of 'technology' as something separate from themselves. Rather, technology is infused into everything they do and see. So how can grown-ups rethink design ideas based on what the next generation is thinking? Tech Tuesday explores the intersection of technology and child development.
