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.
In this special episode recorded live at the recent relaunch of Born Digital: How Children Grow Up in a Digital Age, Palfrey and Gasser moderate an open forum with local students and share many of their findings. The excerpted conversations present much more questions than answers but know that we are all continuously learning together and must continue to think about what’s next.
