Don Tapscott, author of The Digital Economy, turns his attention to the way young people--surrounded by high-tech toys and tools from birth--will likely affect the future. In Growing Up Digital: The Rise of the Net Generation, Tapscott parlays some 300 interviews into predictions on how today's 2- to 22-year-olds might reshape society. His observations about this enormously influential population, which will total 88 million in North America alone by the year 2000, range from the kind of employees they may eventually be to how they could be reached by marketers.
This text aims to explain how the "Net generation" is learning to communicate, work, shop, and play in new ways by using the Internet as a basic resource. It aims to tell the reader how to plan for the the future as the "Net generation" grows up. It is aimed at businessmen, parents, and teachers.Alle Produktbeschreibungen
In today's society, children are greatly affected by the Internet and other digital technology. Tapscott goes to great lengths illustrating how this technology plays a role in their daily lives. These children that have access to the information highway are developing socially, intellectually, and cognitively much more rapidly than previous generations. They are being exposed to a communication link that is instant and cheap. For instance, a child can download homework that he/she missed from school or chat with a pen pal from Japan.
Tapscott explained that these web users are not "couch potatoes" but rather interacting with others. Tapscott not only informs the reader about the web users interactions, but also the way in which these "N-Geners" think and communicate with one another.
Don Tapscott has created some intriguing insights, which allow the reader to see the reality of the Net Generation and their advantages socially and intellectually over previous generations. Tapscott leads his readers into the compelling depths of the interactive world. I would definately recommend this book to individuals who are interested in the children of our society today.
Are computers and the Internet dangerous time-wasters, robbing kids of 'real world' experience, or are they valuable tools that will revolutionize our schools and actually increase the intelligence and knowledge of our kids?
The problem is that most people just don't know. Our children are exploring places where many of us have never been and don't understand, and we're afraid they're getting away from us. Can we trust them to make the right choices, to become the people we want them to be?
According to Don Tapscott, we can. In Growing Up Digital, he argues persuasively that today's kids, or as he calls them, the Net Generation, are fundamentally different from and in many ways ahead of the generations before them. Digital technology has shaped them, just as television shaped their parents, the baby boomers. And it has done a better job than television, replacing a passive broadcast medium with an interactive, involving one. In short, he says, "the kids are all right."
There is a danger in technology writing; authors often get so carried away with the excitement they feel towards new technology and its possibilities that their books become little more than a compendium of gadgets and futuristic scenarios. Growing Up Digital is not immune from this tendency -- sometimes Tapscott writes breathlessly about such possibilities as intelligent search agents, virtual-reality shopping and computer-mediated education. Thankfully, however, these moments are tempered by a wealth of real-world case studies, anecdotes and interviews, and a very real sense of respect for his subjects as individuals.
And they are an articulate bunch of individuals indeed.Lesen Sie weiter... ›
