The Future of Childhood

#sxsw #futurekids

At the intersection of technology and capitalism—mediation and competition—parents are raising children in a world that is much different than it was 20 years ago. This panel features David McCullough Jr., a high school teacher whose message to teens, "You Are Not Special," took the web by storm in 2012. He will present a lively discussion about how technology is affecting families, how parents are affecting children, and how we can prepare for the future—the future of childhood.
