Generation Z is a huge experiment

I am afraid we have no clue (but also little options) about what we are doing to Generation Z and all that are following. We give them tablets when they are 4 and tell everyone how intuitive they swipe and press. When they get older, they spend 6-12 hours of screen time a day, and we have no clue what this does to them. We have some indications, but then again, there can't be long term studies as smartphones are not around that long, and especially everything that happens on smartphones changes quickly. A generation that is served by algorithms seems to get bored quickly, though:
