"Childhoods in a Digital World"

"So swift has been the pace of change that future historians will likely view this period as an overarching era of change, much the same as we now view periods such as the Enlightenment or the Industrial Revolution. Indeed, ecologists and economists have identified the start of this millennium as a new human epoch – the Anthropocene – because of the fundamental shift in society brought by our mass access to commerce, automation and data. And so, internet access is both the biggest challenge but also the biggest opportunity for young people growing up in the UK today. "
