How to educate our children in the creative and responsible use of new technologies

How many times have we thought, watching our kids, even children, dealing with mobile phones, PlayStations, DVD or MP3 players, computers and other electronic devices: this generation was born with digital technology in its DNA. But are we really sure?

What differentiates the young and very young people of the 2000s from their parents or even just their older siblings?

And what effects, positive or negative, can close interaction with technologies from a young age have on the psyche and its development?

In this unpublished and highly topical essay, a psychotherapist, a psychiatrist and a psychologist analyze the issue, describing the effects that this "immersion in the virtual" is causing on children and young people, on their way of experiencing sociality, on cognitive abilities, on relationship with reality. But above all they put forward concrete educational and legislative proposals to ensure that technological progress does not undermine those playful and creative aspects that are essential for building a peaceful childhood and a balanced adult personality. For this purpose, the Alba Charter is entirely republished here, an important document that establishes the points of possible regulatory intervention and cultural actions to guarantee the best development and optimal use of new media for present and future generations.
