The world has changed fundamentally as a result of the growth of digital technologies. Nowhere is that change felt more acutely than in the way young people are growing up in the early part of the 21st century. How has creativity changed? Are young people learning differently? Are fears about students being less safe and more distracted than ever before really true? Is privacy dead for our young people? What kinds of jobs should we be preparing them to take on in the future? With social media, artificial intelligence and autonomous vehicles all a reality, how has the very act of growing up changed in the early 21st century? Grounded in more than a decade of research conducted at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University, author and educator John Palfrey will share research findings about the lives of a generation “born digital”.

John Palfrey is Head of School at Phillips Academy. He was previously the Henry N.
