Young people grow up in an environment that is increasingly driven by and dependent upon digital technologies. Their social, learning and play spaces are being encroached upon by ubiquitous technologies so that the divide between public and private, online and offline is being eroded. At a time of crucial development this leaves them exposed to a unique set of challenges, such as tech habit and addiction, information pollution, algorithms and discrimination and data surveillance.
Tactical Tech’s youth initiative seeks to define and address these challenges alongside young people and those that support them. Through research, educational curricula and creative interventions, we will work towards increasing the data literacy of the next generation so that they can think critically and proactively about the digital environment they want to live in now and in the future.
This is a new initiative at Tactical Tech. If you are working on similar topics and want to collaborate we would love to hear from you. Please write to email@example.com.
