Mind and Supermind: iGen: The Smartphone Generation and the Future
The stereotypical depiction of Generation Z – those born after 1995 – often involves a teenager with eyes inches from a smartphone and thumbs furiously tapping at the screen. But as Dr. Jean Twenge will explore in the upcoming SBCC School of Extended Learning Mind & Supermind series lecture, these devices are leading many in the “iGen” to grow up more slowly and with higher rates of depression.
A headline-making psychologist, researcher and author, Dr. Twenge will discuss how smartphones are impacting the mental health and happiness of the iGen. Come explore iGen psychology and consider what can be done to help this generation reach their potential.
