Children Know More

1 min read

In Confronting the Challenges of Particatory Culture by Henry Jenkins he states that "Children and youths do indeed know more about these new media environments than most parents and teachers," (15). I agree with this statement because children do know more about technology than their teachers and parents. As much as people make fun of the idea of children having iphones and laptops at such a young age, people have to remember that they are the future and if they know how to use their iphones and their laptops at such a young age they will know how to use technology to their advantage when they are older. The reason that there is so much conflict between the older generations and the younger generations revolving children with technology is because typically the older generations do not know how to use technology and do not understand its importance in education.
