John Palfrey talked about the book he wrote with Urs Gasser, Born Digital: Understanding the First Generation of Digital Natives (Basic Books, 2008). In the book he profiles the first generation of children that are living in a digital world. Known as “digital natives,” Professor Palfrey examines how this generation utilizes the Internet and the different ways they comprehend their on-line surroundings. Focusing on questions that an older generation or “digital immigrants” commonly ask, he explores a range of issues from privacy and safety to the concept of identity and learning on-line. Following his remarks, Professor Palfrey responded to questions from audience members.
