Course Description

Personal technology is something most professionals today want and need to use. And yet, the devices we depend on can hamper performance and divert us away from our most important priorities – if we allow them to.

This CPE course introduces effective strategies for managing distraction and other negative impacts of technology. Special attention will be given to setting parameters for the healthy use of devices such as smartphones and addressing controversial claims about what technology does to our minds and brains.

Major Topics Covered in this online CPE webinar:

  • Myths and facts about how technology affects the mind.
  • Multitasking with technology – does it ever work, and what does it do to your mind over time?
  • The top three ways in which personal technology hurts performance.
  • How to create and stick to a plan for managing personal technology?
  • Settings, applications, and shortcuts can make managing personal technology easier.

In this highly interactive CPE/CPD course, author and research psychologist Dr. Michelle Miller will draw on her recent book “Remembering and Forgetting in the Age of Technology” and her research publications to address these timely and pressing issues. Participants will learn techniques, strategies, and shortcuts they can begin using right away to achieve a higher level of focus and get more out of the devices they use every day.
