Podcast: Growing Up Tech: Beyond the Hype and Fear

This podcast features a keynote session by Tracy Mitrano, Director of IT Policy and Computer Policy and Law Program at Cornell University. The speech is entitled, "Growing Up Tech: Beyond the Hype and Fear". It was recorded at the EDUCAUSE 2008 Western Regional Conference.

Why is technology often blamed when bad behavioral things happen? This session will address how higher education provide American society with leadership on how to understand the role that technology plays, not only in our classrooms but also in our homes and families, as a conduit for the creation of culture and as a medium for individual development and identity formation of youth.
