Answering John Gardner’s Challenge

Howard Gardner has contributed a blog post to DML Central, the Digital Media & Learning Research Hub’s blog devoted to the effects of digital media on education and youth civics.

Recounting John W. Gardner’s two decade old reflection that many young people are doing good work but are unsupported by government legislation, Howard Gardner notes that youth in our society continue to engage in high numbers in politics by using technology even in spite of a divided political system and concludes that we should encourage the next generation towards a future in which civic rights are protected and leaders are apt and informed.
