Tieners en digitale duurzaamheid

O wat vind ik dit soort programma's mooi...
Begin dit jaar schreef ik al over het K-12 Web Archiving-project van de Library of Congres en Archive-it. Maar NDIIP heeft meer jeugdprogramma's over duurzame toegankelijkheid.
Vorige maand bezocht een klas "8th graders" uit Florida de LoC en zij werden een uur lang onderhouden over het bewaren van hun digitale foto's:
There was a roughly even split between students who used digital cameras and those who used phones to take their pictures, with one student still using film (!). The split is important, because the primary distribution (and possibly only long-term storage) strategy for many of the phone users was to upload their photos to a social networking site such as Facebook.
We explained some of the issues with using a social network site as a primary storage option (history has shown that those sites don’t stick around forever), and talked about how it’s best to save your photos across a range of devices (thumb drives, CDs, external hard drives, online storage) and geographies (your house in Florida, your friend’s house across town, your grandma’s house in Seattle).
And we were pleasantly surprised by the students’ degree of knowledge on the issues. Most of them recognized that their digital photos were “at-risk” in some way (one had filled her camera by shooting 800 photos in one day and was worried about how to save them when she ran out of space), and many had perfectly reasonable back-up and replication strategies already in place. Our presentation “teased-out” more detail on these strategies, and got both the students and their parental chaperones to think a little harder about saving their photos with something that resembled a long-term strategy.
Bekijk ook even de presentatie (pdf) die ze gebruikt hebben.

Zeg, Robèrt, hoe en wanneer gaan we dit hier in den lande organiseren?
