TEC Center friend and Raising Digital Natives founder Devorah Heitner, Ph.D. presents a TEDx talk on “The Challenges of Raising a Digital Native.”  During the talk, she addresses parents’ concerns about children’s use of digital media in the home, the impact adults have on children’s technology and media use, and encourages parents “to get curious about kids’ lived experiences with technology” that include the opportunities technology can empower children as well as its challenges.  Her talk also highlights research she has conducted about children’s daily experiences with technology and showcases the creative solutions children have designed to solve these issues.
