How Technology is Changing Us: How We Think, Relate, and Live

Digital technology has become imbedded into our lives, impacting how we think and remember, mediating our relationships and how we connect, communicate, and interact with each other.  It is also having a profound impact on how live, work, and play.

Do our devices enlighten us or create an unhealthy dependence? Are Google, Facebook, and Instagram making us collectively more informed or distracted? What will be the overall effect on Millennials and the legacy of their generation? Are there grounds for optimism or is there an urgent need to wake up to how this tech tidal wave is overwhelming our lives and institutions?

This seminar will explore the way our brains and relationships are being re-wired in the digital age, and the impact these fundamental changes are having on the future of work and how we make a living.

Moderated by Stephen BalkamFounder and CEO of the Family Online Safety Institute (FOSI).
