Katie Davis and The App Generation at Town Hall Seattle

Today's digital youth seem inseparable from the fast-changing technologies that define our times. In a world where rotary phones and dial-up internet are unknown concepts, has this generation of digital youth become "app-enabled" and "app-dependent"? In "The App Generation: How Today's Youth Navigate Identity, Intimacy, and Imagination in a Digital World," Katie Davis, assistant professor at the iSchool, traces the history of the digital revolution and its effect on creativity.
