"Even on a grey, gloomy November day it’s not hard to think that children growing up today are blessed." — Geoff Mulgan, Chief Executive of Nesta
Lovely article in this weekend’s The Huffington Post on how our children will become the first truly digital generation. Whether it’s using the internet, a PS3 or smartphone, children today are growing up with technology that will make them as adults more digitally literate than we could ever be.
It has dramatic implications for every part of life, not least of which is how children want to receive, engage and use information. The very way children learn has transformed but the question remains whether we — government, schools and parents — are doing enough to recognise and support this change.
We support CEO of Nesta, Geoff Mulgan’s, call for more to be done to skill the next generation for the digital world they will grow into. It’s time we invest in digital training that not only meets how our children want to learn, but will equip to be successful in the future.
