Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet and Society has a new crop of interns each summer that work on research projects relating to the Youth and Media project. I recently discovered this great collection of videos the 2010 interns created and was inspired.
Working with the Center’s digital media producer, each intern created a video to illustrate each chapter of Born Digital by John Palfrey and Urs Gasser.

About Born Digital
Based on extensive original research, including interviews with Digital Natives around the world, Born Digital explores a broad range of issues, from the highly philosophical to the purely practical: What does identity mean for young people who have dozens of online profiles and avatars? Should we worry about privacy issues – or is privacy even a relevant concern for Digital Natives? How does the concept of safety translate into an increasingly virtual world? Are online games addictive, and how do we need to worry about violent video games? What is the Internet’s impact on creativity and learning? What lies ahead – socially, professionally, and psychologically – for this generation?
