Digital Agency

Technology is everywhere and constantly changing – it’s natural to feel like things are spinning out of control. It’s rational to feel like you don’t have enough power to change it.

Let’s explore another angle.

What control do you have? What is actually within your power? What would it mean to have digital agency: to feel motivated and able to control the way tech fits into your life?

Certainly, a single person’s digital agency cannot resolve the broader issues in society related to tech. And, individuals should not have to shoulder the burden of correcting systemic problems alone. So where can one begin?

We can start by planting seeds within ourselves, families, and communities that foster digital agency. Youth especially crave a greater sense of control over the way tech fits into their lives, so helping them build digital agency can be particularly meaningful.
