The App Generation: How Today's Youth Navigate Identity, Intimacy, and Imagination in a Digital World The App Generation: How Today's Youth Navigate Identity, Intimacy, and Imagination in a Digital World

by Howard Gardner and Katie Davis

Book Reviews

"Here we have a serious consideration that a generation has grown up with an emotional aesthetic as instrumental as their technology. That is, this generation approaches intimacy, identity, and imagination through the prism of the apps that have surrounded them. Gardner and Davis further consider the proposition that 'What can't be an app doesn't matter.' But the authors do more than this. They approach their subject in a constructive spirit, providing analytical tools to distinguish among apps, the ones that will stifle and the ones that will nurture. In the end, they see a way forward: We are responsible, individually and in our communities and families to use technology in ways that open up the world rather that close it down. The App Generation is not anti-technology; it simply puts technology in its place."
-- Sherry Turkle, author of Alone Together: Why We Expect More from Technology and Less from Each Other

"The App Generation deals with a crucial issue for our future, and it is a pioneering and prophetic work in its genre."
-- Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, author of Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience

"This book is must reading for parents, teachers and policy makers. It presents a portrait of today's young people, not in terms of the traditional historical events of their lives, but instead the digital technology that shaped this generation. It compellingly and powerfully examines the impact, consequences, and implications for their and society's future."
-- Arthur Levine, President of the Woodrow Wilson Foundation & former President of Teachers College, Columbia University
