'Growing Up' is changing — for the better — in our New Age of Empowerment!
From: being a kid, going to school, and finding work
TO: FINDING WHO YOU ARE,
APPLYING IT POSITIVELY TO THE WORLD, and
REALIZING YOUR DREAMS
EMPOWERED! Re-framing ‘Growing up’ for a New Age
...is an inspiring, visionary and optimistic book—aimed at parents, employers, educators, politicians—and young people! The book is about seeing the NEW AGE OF EMPOWERMENT THAT IS COMING FOR PEOPLE WHO HAPPEN TO BE YOUNG TODAY. Finally, says Prensky, our young people are gaining the means to control their world. Becoming empowered allows them not just to take control of their world, but to improve it. Empowerment means—according to Prensky—self-direction plus accomplishment with impact. It comes from a combination of: NEW BELIEFS, REAL-WORLD ACCOMPLISHMENT, APPLIED UNIQUENESS and SYMBIOSIS WITH TECHNOLOGY. Prensky shows us why it’s important to empower all 2 billion of our young people, and how to do it more quickly.
