Coming of Age in a Digital World: The battle of Old Vs. New

  1. 1. Coming of Age in a Digital World Image: Stuck in Customs
  2. 2. Being born in the early part of the 90’s, childhood was largely absent of social connections like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and for a larger portion… …the accessible internet Image: Stuck in Customs
  3. 3. Image: Jose Luis Mieza Photography With the inception of these social mediums, the developmental social landscape of childhood has changed completely
  4. 4. Image: Stuck in Customs Children are now being raised in a world that is very different than the one their parents would have experienced…. …essentially a battle of Old Vs. New
  5. 5. Raising the question: What is the best way to connect the two together? Image: epc
  6. 6. Many social media sites require a minimum age to access their services and offerings Image: wwward0
  7. 7. Yet there are 7.5 Million underage Facebook users, two thirds of which are 10 years old or younger Image: Daniel*1977
  8. 8. Image: Reena Mahtani Therefore, the message that the websites are producing are not being clearly understood… Should responsibility be put on the parents?
  9. 9. Image: Daniel*1977 Unfortunately, 78% of parents surveyed (PEW) help their children lie to Facebook about [their] age
  10. 10. Image: Cohdra Furthermore, 44% of teenagers admitted to lying about their age to gain access to a web site
  11. 11. The idealized childhood is under attack from mobile phones and tablets as well Image: dai-kon
  12. 12. Image: Paul Mayne A study in 2010 shows that two-thirds of children ages 4- 7 had used an iPhone
  13. 13. Image: Alvimann “As technology become ubiquitous in our lives, American parents are becoming more, not less, wary of what it might be doing to their children” - Hana Rosin
  14. 14. Image: bjornsk “On the one hand, parents want their children to swim expertly in the digital stream that they will have to navigate all their lives; on the other hand, they fear that too much digital media, too early, will sink them” - Hanna Rosin
  15. 15. Image: Ol’1 eye Parents end up treating tablets like precision surgical instruments, gadgets that might perform miracles for their child’s IQ…but only if they are used just so ….[or they] could end up one of those sad, pale creatures who can’t make eye contact and has an avatar for a girlfriend. – Hanna Rosen
  16. 16. When we look back and consult Hanna Rosen, she states that “every new medium has, within a short time of its introduction, been condemned as a threat to young people”… Image: Antimidia
  17. 17. Image: S Richards Photography Although there have been no studies on the effects of early screen time in children I don’t think we should discount them just yet…
  18. 18. Image: rolfkallman Introduction of tablets, smartphones and access/membership to several websites will only help improve digital literacy and help close the divide in the upcoming years
  19. 19. Image: Stuck in Customs Mobi l e devi ces and t he i nt er net enabl e l i f e-l ong l ear ni ng as wel l as connect i ng us t o essent i al ser vi ces l i ke mobi l e heal t h and mobi l e banki ng
