Sat, Nov 13, 09:30-10:30 Asia/Tokyo | LOCATION: Plenary Session #2

Focusing on young people born after 2000 (whom I refer to as the “digital generation”), I address how they use digital technologies today and what kinds of communicative abilities are called for in this new era of advancing digital technology.
