Book Relaunch: Celebrate “Born Digital”
Join the authors for an interactive discussion on Friday, November 4, at 6:30; reception to follow
A celebration of the relaunch of Born Digital: How Children Grow Up in a Digital Age by John Palfrey and Urs Gasser will take place on Friday, November 4, 2016, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., in Kemper Auditorium. There will be an interactive discussion open to all community members. A reception will follow in the Underwood Room.
Be Part of the Conversation
Celebrating more than a decade of research about the lives of a generation “born digital,” the gathering will feature a conversation with the authors and the research team, together with students, parents, and teachers. Focal points will include the creative dimensions of young people’s lives, as multifaceted learners, civic leaders, innovative entrepreneurs, and playful creators. The event will also spotlight the challenges that young people encounter as they navigate ubiquitous information and learn how to safeguard their privacy. All participants, including parents, teachers, coaches, and young people themselves, will offer their ideas about shaping social and educational environments that are responsive to both the opportunities and challenges afforded by the digital age. They will also consider how to strengthen technology platforms that encourage safe, inclusive, and transparent use of personal data.
