Media, kids and mad parents

Dean Groom, Playable, Apr 14, 2015
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I think this article describes a very narrow segment of media-rich kids, but the message and warning are relevant. Dean Groom writes, "Kids live in a world which is presented to them though inescapable media messages where persistent ‘calls to action’.... I’m describing this culture as neo-evolutionary where the media created for them is more powerful than any media created by them." This culture removes from kids the need to have money or credit cards - everything they need is delivered to them right through the media they consume. "The media has accepted that children will live in a neo-evolutionary closed community where the messages are there for just about any other purpose than critical thinking."
