Anastasia Goodstein on Totally Wired Teens

Anastasia Goodstein, the author of Totally Wired: What Teens and Tweens Are Really Doing Online, was my guest on EdTechLive today.

Anastasia blogs for for teen/youth media and marketing professionals at Ypulse.com, about Teen and Tween online life at Totally Wired. We met virtually when she, Jim Daly (the editor-in-chief of Edutopia), and the Yahoo! for Teachers team selected Ben Wilkoff as the Totally Wired Teacher of the Year.

I stayed up until the wee hours of this morning reading her book, which I had intended only to skim but which kept me totally engaged, and which I recommend as a very insightful look at the online life of youth today. There's even a chapter on technology in schools called "Teaching the Teachers," which I thought did a really good job of portraying the current state of computing in education.
