Book Abstract

Today’s generation of young adults and teenagers have grown up with the Internet and digital technologies. These Digital Natives are changing the world irrevocably in how they relate to information, media, entertainment, politics, and culture. Their ways of learning about and experiencing the world are fundamentally different from the previous generation. These Digital Natives face a rapidly changing social landscape where unprecedented amounts of information will be stored about them throughout their lifetimes. Likewise, they have access to staggering amounts of information – and the growth rates of both phenomena are rapidly increasing. Born Digital examines the social and technological forces surrounding the Internet and its effects on the social, educational, psychological, and professional development of Digital Natives and the world at large.
