Does media use define the experience of childhood? Amy Jordan, Associate Dean of Children’s Media and Policy at the Annenberg School of Communications, will discuss her work about how technology can both divide generations and connect them and enhance their well-being. She’ll touch on the challenges of systematically studying youth and media, particularly in an environment where “everyone’s an expert” and judgments are based on personal experiences, and why we must recognize that the experience of “childhood” is not monolithic, but reflects the familial, economic, social, political, and geographic contexts in which children develop.
