Summer 2014: Exploring the Digital Revolution

In the summer academic program, students come together for five weeks of intensive, hands-on study of a particular theme. This summer’s theme is Exploring The Digital Revolution. With coaching from exceptional teachers, industry/university experts and corporate leadership facilitators, students will conduct a study of the relationship between humans and steady increase of technology in our society. What impact has technology had on communication and interaction? Education? Politics? Consumerism and the global economy? We will take a close look at social media and online communities as well as citizen journalism. What are the consequences, promises, and impacts the Digital Revolution has had on our daily lives?
