Society has high hopes and considerable fears for the digital future. On the one hand, parents are told – get your children coding so they have the digital skills needed for a competitive future. On the other hand, they are old – millions of jobs will be lost to digital robots by 2030 – exactly the date by which many of today’s children will be adults looking for work. Professor Sonia Livingstone discusses how our hopes and fears about technology shape children’s lives and the findings from her newly published book with Dr Alicia Blum-Ross.
