New technologies, New Opportunities
While new technologies generate new opportunities, innovation may, at times, prove synonymous with exclusion. We change our world faster than we change ourselves. The richness and diversity of the ongoing technological innovation provide us with an unparalleled quality of life. We are now more than ever, equipped with tools that multiply our physical and intellectual capacities, give us immediate access to unlimited information, revolutionized communication and its limits, and subverted interpersonal, work, and power relationships. A changing world is an implacable world for those most fragile amongst us, who need time, protection and support to survive and who are different, in a world that wakes up different every day.
Time to think about it
What opportunities are new technologies offering us? What dangers do they hide? How are they transforming families, social and love relationships, jobs and free time? Does anyone know how to be a parent in the digital age? Do we know how to be teachers in the era of screens, the Internet, chats and posts? Are we fully prepared to deal with a millenial generation about to reach adulthood – a generation of online cosmopolitans and multi-taskers, indifferent to hierarchies and traditions?
