Katie Davis, Author of Technology's Child

“Technology’s Child is the book we’ve been waiting for — deeply informative about how connected technology impacts children’s sense of self, their relationships, and their learning. This thoughtful and deeply researched account will inform parents, educators, and (hopefully) designers, too.”

Devorah Heitner, author of

Screenwise: Helping Kids Thrive (and survive) in Their Digital World
