About this Item
- Digital Natives Series: Everything Bad is Good for You
- For today's "digital natives," information is ubiquitous, instant and permanently available. They are connected, interconnected and multitasking. Is this affecting how they think, how they process knowledge? A spirited defense of the digital generation was presented at the Library of Congress by Steven Berlin Johnson, who discussed "Everything Bad Is Good for You." This is the second lecture in a series titled "Digital Natives," the generation that has been raised with the computer as a natural part of their lives, with emphasis on the young people currently in schools and colleges today. The series seeks to understand the practices and culture of the digital natives, the cultural implications of the phenomenon and the implications for education -- schools, universities and libraries. In his talk, based on his 2005 best-selling book, "Everything Bad is Good for You," Johnson will discuss the response to his argument that popular culture is growing more complex and cognitively challenging, and is not racing downward towards a lowest common denominator. He will also talk about the future of books in this digital age.
