Howard Gardner's New Book Examines How Tech Shifts Youth Culture
APP INTELLIGENCE: Howard Gardner, famed Harvard professor renowned for theories on multiple intelligence, has published his first edtech focused book, The App Generation, which culminates years of research on the impact of technology on youth culture. Along with co-author Katie Davis, Gardner identifies ways that apps can be double-edged sword for students. Case in example: Instagram, which enables creative expression through photography but also limits that creativity by only allowing users the same set of color filters. EdWeek's Justin Reich provides an in-depth review on EdWeek and the New York Times has a much more critical assessment.
