In this brave new world of iPads, gaming, and the Internet, kids have plenty of new ways to take in information.  But how is this changing how they learn?  And are video games more beneficial than we think?  Cultural anthropologist Mimi Ito talks about parenting strategies, in-school and out-of-school strategies, and how kids can maximize their learning with new technology. 
Dr. Mimi Ito speaks Wednesday, March 21, at the Windmill Library at 5 p.m.
