92Y Live - Howard Gardner: On the App Generation

  • December 09, 2013
  • 8:00 PM - 9:30 PM
  • Library Auditorium, 3rd Floor - Mandel Public Library of West Palm Beach


  Are you baffled by how younger people live in a digital world?  Are you living in that world and don't see what the fuss is about?  Either way, you'll want to hear from Harvard professor Howard Gardner.  In his new book, The App Generation, Gardner looks at what's different for today's adolescents.  Apps can either stunt or spur creativity, limit or encourage personal connections.  We can choose to be "app-dependent" or app-enabled".  Find out how. 

Gardner is best known in educational circles for his theory of multiple intelligences, a critique of the notion that there exists but a single human intelligence.
