The Speaker writes: ‘Full of Character: Educating the Digital Generation for a Humane Future takes the idea that education needs to anticipate an age when automation is going to affect the job market in potentially devastating ways. It also challenges education systems that are too narrow and instrumental in their understanding of ‘intelligence’ I also explore the idea of ‘fullness’. Instead of writing about mindfulness, I explore other sorts of ‘fullness’ – thoughtfulness, carefulness, thankfulness, self-forgetfulness, resourcefulness, playfulness, hopefulness – with the thought that we are only ever ‘full’ in so far as we participate in the fullness of God. I commend an understanding of what it means to try to be human and humane in a digital age, drawing on Christian insight and wisdom.’
