ICYMI: Carrie James on Disconnected at Berkman Center in January

If you missed Carrie James on Disconnected: Youth, New Media, and the Ethics Gap in January 2015, here's a bit about the book:
Fresh from a party, a teen posts a photo on Facebook of a friend drinking a beer. A college student repurposes an article from Wikipedia for a paper. A group of players in a multiplayer online game routinely cheat new players by selling them worthless virtual accessories for high prices. How do youth, and the adults in their lives, think about the moral and ethical dimensions of their participation in online communities? In this talk Carrie James -- Lecturer on Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education and author of "Disconnected: Youth, New Media, and the Ethics Gap" -- explores how young people approach questionable situations online as well as more dramatic ethical dilemmas that arise in digital contexts.

A number of service providers, advocates, policy wonks, and interested residents came together January 20, 2015 to watch the Berkman Center event.   I captured the official Berkman program and the local feedback in DC youth advocates and the @BerkmanCenter's @carrie_james event January 20, 2015.
