Erin Mishkin, The Digital Natives Project and Gabriel Mugar, Founder, Press Pass TV - "In his well-known article on "digital natives," Marc Prensky writes, 'Today’s students are no longer the people our educational system was designed to teach.' How so? How do we begin to address this issue? What schools/programs are already leading the way in approaching education from a digital natives perspective?"

We would love it if, when you sign up, you can identify your affiliation and also pose a question or two that interests you on the topic of digital natives! Also, if you're interested in some additional reading, check out:

Scott Lozier, Administrative Coordinator, Office of the Arts -- Harvard University -- Are artists like professors - keepers of knowledge that they have exclusive rights to? Where does distribution end in today's world?

Full Description

Imagine that you have over twenty years of the best historic Jazz Archives in the world: performances, interviews, master classes. You have a program to bring two Jazz masters to your university each year. Your mission is to educate undergrads, the university community and spread jazz to the world. Your hope is to help Jazz thrive all over the world. But no one can access your archives.

Should the university use its resources to support artistic excellence like it supports academic excellence? What are the copyright issues around the arts compared to research or classes? Are artists like professors - keepers of knowledge that they have exclusive rights to? Many artists sign contracts stating that the university can distribute copies in furtherance of the university's educational goals? Where does distribution end in today's world?

Lewis Hyde, Berkman Center Fellow, Richard L. Thomas Professor of Creative Writing -- Kenyon College and Eric Gordon -- Assistant Professor of New Media, Emerson College - "What should the fair use norms be for classroom teaching?"

Description (From Prof. Hyde) -- My hope would be to continue the working group in a more informal and intimate manner. I would also like it if people brought their specific experiences (cases & troubles they have had) to the table for discussion.
