Our children are growing up in a media revolution, a world where everyone can be their own publisher, where the boundaries of social mores and authority is eroding. What does myspace and youtube mean to tots and tweens? How do we ‘grown-ups’ communicate and engage with children and youth culture in this environment?
Children are increasingly opinionated, independent and brand aware at a very young age, what impact will new technologies and digital interactions have on how the next generation learns, grows up and runs organisations? What is going to happen to children’s creativity in future generations? How can digital media facilitate children’s creative development whilst education runs the risk of taming their imagination? What and how are they learning?
What will the effect of dwindling TV audiences have on advertising to this market? How do you involve children in the design process and what are the best strategies for working with them? What can we learn by the way they input? What do children want from new technologies and where’s the future for us all.
