The Challenge of Digital Technology to Values and the Effort to Develop a Sustainable Culture
by S. Kay Toombs, PhD
From the moment of birth, children in this society grow up in a home, social and educational environment permeated by digital technology. Ninety-five percent of teens are online, and an increasing number of infants under one year old now regularly use tablets and other mobile devices. What will this new technology-laden environment mean for our culture?
Citing a wide variety of neurological, sociological and psychological research studies, this book considers the effects of this unprecedented change on the lives of the young, as well as detailing how these technologies are changing the way we think and radically altering our relationship with nature, with reality and with each other.
