How are memory and attention changing in a world dominated by technology?
Do we need to protect our intellectual abilities from the effects of smartphones and search engines, and if so, what are the best ways to do this – especially when few of us can afford to opt out of technology altogether?
Join author and research psychologist, Dr. Michelle Miller, in tackling these questions that affect all professionals working in technology-driven environments. Dr. Miller will draw on her recent book “Remembering and Forgetting in the Age of Technology” to discuss what research says – and doesn’t say - about the cognitive impacts of the internet and mobile devices, and what it means for learning, working, and living well in the contemporary world.
