Is Technology Helping or Hurting This Generation

Hilarie Gamm, Author of “Billions Lost: The American Tech Crisis and the Road Map to Change” spoke to Gary Rivers Thursday morning about technology and first generation to spend their entire adolescence in the age of the smartphone.

With social media and texting replacing other activities, todays children spend more time on devices and less time with their friends in person—and Gamm explained why this instant generation is experiencing unprecedented levels of anxiety, depression, and loneliness.

She’ll discuss:

  • Technology has impacted almost every aspect of life today, and education is no exception.  
  • Do children require mapping skills to get around, or the ability to ask and follow simple verbal directions to arrive at a destination they are unfamiliar with?
  • Is learning a foreign language truly necessary in American schools today?
