Deep Dive: Sounding the Alarm on Kids and Tech

Setup

After The Atlantic ran a cover story with the headline “Have Smartphones Destroyed a Generation of Kids?” a spate of stories and opinion pieces followed. The media was flooded with rants in comments sections, a former Facebook exec warned that social media is ripping apart our society, and Apple investors formally asked the company to take measures that would prevent iPhones from harming children. A panel of thought leaders will examine the knowns and unknowns, and ask how we, the adults in the room, can support and guide this generation of digital natives. Should we take a honest look at our own tech usage first? We’ll hear from kids themselves as a small group joins the adults on stage for a town hall-style conversation. Students: Romane Davis, Andres Diaz, Jacklyn Diaz, Amber Edwards, Shannon Moran, and Francesca Seeman.
