Dr. Susan Linn’s unparalleled research on the impact of Big Tech and big business on children argues that our digitized-commercialized culture, and the ways it infiltrates our homes and classrooms, is damaging for kids and families as well as society at large. In this talk, based on her September, 2022, book by the same title, Susan will explore and expose the roots of this modern condition, explain the commercial incentives that drive it, and map out what we can do for our families, our students, and our communities, to create change.
