The app generation : how today's youth navigate identity, intimacy, and imagination in a digital world by Howard Gardner( Book )

17 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 2,347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"No one has failed to notice that the current generation of youth is deeply-some would say totally-involved with digital media. Professors Howard Gardner and Katie Davis name today's young people The App Generation, and in this spellbinding book they explore what it means to be "app-dependent" versus "app-enabled" and how life for this generation differs from life before the digital era. Gardner and Davis are concerned with three vital areas of adolescent life: identity, intimacy, and imagination. Through innovative research, including interviews of young people, focus groups of those who work with them, and a unique comparison of youthful artistic productions before and after the digital revolution, the authors uncover the drawbacks of apps: they may foreclose a sense of identity, encourage superficial relations with others, and stunt creative imagination. On the other hand, the benefits of apps are equally striking: they can promote a strong sense of identity, allow deep relationships, and stimulate creativity. The challenge is to venture beyond the ways that apps are designed to be used, Gardner and Davis conclude, and they suggest how the power of apps can be a springboard to greater creativity and higher aspirations"--

Generazione app : la testa dei giovani e il nuovo mondo digitale by Howard Gardner( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in Italian and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le "app", o applicazioni software, fanno ormai parte della vita di tutti noi. L'attuale generazione di giovani in particolare è profondamente dipendente dai media digitali. Howard Gardner e Katie Davis non per nulla chiamano i giovani d'oggi la "generazione app" e in questo suggestivo libro cercano di capire che cosa significhi essere app-dipendente rispetto ad app-attivo e in che modo la vita di questa generazione si differenzi da quella che precede l'era digitale. Tre sono le fondamentali aree dell'esistenza degli adolescenti qui prese in considerazione: l'identità, l'intimità e l'immaginazione. Attraverso innovative forme di ricerca, che comprendono interviste con ragazzi, focus group di quanti lavorano con loro e una comparazione unica nel suo genere di produzioni artistiche giovanili di prima e dopo la rivoluzione digitale, gli autori svelano quali siano gli inconvenienti delle app, che possono ipotecare il senso d'identità, incoraggiare relazioni superficiali con il prossimo e ostacolare l'immaginazione. D'altra parte le opportunità offerte dalle app sono altrettanto impressionanti: possono al contrario promuovere una forte identità, consentire relazioni profonde e stimolare la creatività. Possono essere un freno o uno stimolo. La sfida consiste nel saper andare oltre le modalità prestabilite di utilizzo. Solo così il loro potere può diventare un trampolino per una maggiore inventiva e più alti obiettivi
Dancing with the devil by Katie Davis( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To move on from her past, an extraordinary girl must tear down the walls she has built to protect herself. Mackenzie Douglas seems to have it all: good looks, a great boyfriend, a passion for biking, and a little sister who worships her. But under the veneer of perfection lie the emotional scars of her childhood, inflicted by her father. Though her memories have faded with time, the wounds on Mac's subconscious remain. Having vowed to never be a victim again, Mac focuses on a journey she's always wanted to take: a summer bike trip on her amazing new RoadCap bike. But as the excursion finally gets underway, memories Mac long ago buried start to claw their way back to the surface, forcing her to confront a past she has done everything she can to forget. To prevent her sister from enduring the same trauma, Mac must let go of everything in which she's found refuge. To break a cycle that needs to be broken, Mackenzie summons her strength and risks shattering the world she has so carefully built, exposing hidden secrets, long-told lies, and a horrific crime
La generaci©Øon APP : C©Øomo los j©Øovenes gestionan su identidad, su privacidad y su imaginaci©Øon en el mundo digital by Katie Davis( )

1 edition published in 2014 in Spanish and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No es arriesgado afirmar que la generaci©Øon actual de j©Øovenes est©Øa profundamente (por no decir totalmente) inmersa en los medios digitales. Los profesores Howard Gardner y Katie Davis describen a los j©Øovenes de hoy como La generaci©Øon APP , y en este libro deslumbrante estudian qu©Øe significa ser app dependiente frente a ser app competente y c©Øomo la vida de esta generaci©Øon difiere de la vida anterior a la era digital. Gardner y Davis abordan tres ©Øareas cruciales de la vida de los adolescentes, como son la identidad, la intimidad y la imaginaci©Øon. Gracias a sus investigaciones pioneras, complementadas con entrevistas a j©Øovenes y a grupos de estudio de sus colaboradores, as©Øi como a una ins©Øolita comparaci©Øon de las producciones art©Øisticas de los j©Øovenes antes y despu©Øes de la era digital, los autores desvelan los inconvenientes de las aplicaciones, que difuminan el sentimiento de identidad, fomentan las relaciones superficiales con los dem©Øas y entorpecen la imaginaci©Øon creativa. Por otra parte, las ventajas de las aplicaciones no dejan de sorprendernos, pues pueden fomentar un fuerte sentimiento de identidad, propiciar las relaciones profundas y estimulan la creatividad. Para Gardner y Davis, el reto consiste en aventurarse a utilizar las apps m©Øas all©Øa de aquello para lo que han sido dise©Þnadas. Asimismo, indican que el potencial de las apps puede ser un trampol©Øin para aumentar nuestra creatividad y nuestras aspiraciones
