What does it mean to be born digital? How are adults and children navigating the ever-evolving and complex technological landscape of modern life? Are students spending too much time on devices or are they using modern innovations to develop crucial life skills? Phillips Academy Head of School John Palfrey and Harvard Researcher Urs Gasser have spent years researching these topics and you might be surprised at what they’ve discovered.
