While it runs the risk of sounding clichéd, it is, nonetheless,
important to acknowledge that new technology has
had, and continues to have a massive impact upon society—
or, more accurately, developed societies. This technology
includes computers and their software, the internet and its
innumerable protocols, digital storage devices, web and
digital cameras, and mobile phones. These developments—
which are ongoing—have radically altered our ability to
obtain and manage information, and a wide variety of other
materials. Moreover, they have drastically changed the way in
which we communicate with one another and interact more
generally. This is relevant as much to our professional as
our personal lives, and as much to children (including young
people) as adults.
