So adults have a steep learning curve when it comes to kids in the digital age. The best way to start understanding what’s happening? Talk with them.
To that end, we’re revisiting a conversation from earlier this year that kicked off a series on education and technology. Meet 16-year-old Grace, who shared nine lessons about being a teenager with a smartphone.
