The first generation to grow up digital has arrived, and they are transforming the way we work, play, and communicate. In Growing Up Digital, bestselling author Don Tapscott profiles this net generation and how its use of digital technology reshaping the way society and individuals interact. Unlike the Baby Boomers who grew up with the passive medium of television, children today, in ever-growing numbers, are embracing interactive media such as the Internet, CD-ROM, and video games. Growing Up Digital highlights how young people-empowered by digital media-learn, work, play, communicate, and shop differently than their boomer parents. It examines what this means for the whole spectrum of society, including our education system, the government, and economy. Taken together, Growing Up Digital offers an overview of the Net Generation's fearless overhaul of our culture; and it gives the members of this generation-and everyone affected by their use of new media-a chance to anticipate and act on what lies ahead.

Don Tapscott, author of The Digital Economy, turns his attention to the way young people--surrounded by high-tech toys and tools from birth--will likely affect the future. In Growing Up Digital: The Rise of the Net Generation, Tapscott parlays some 300 interviews into predictions on how today's 2- to 22-year-olds might reshape society. His observations about this enormously influential population, which will total 88 million in North America alone by the year 2000, range from the kind of employees they may eventually be to how they could be reached by marketers.From the Back Cover:
