Monsters of the IT: The Human Impact of Information on Technology

Adult Event – open to the public

The explosion in social networking, digital media, gaming and information technology has become a potent force that increasingly shapes our lives and those of our children. Emerging research is measuring the impacts of IT on the neurology, behavior and relationships of people, both at work and in our personal lives, with a particular emphasis on the developing brain of the child. Explore the perils and promises posed by infotech that will further transform our daily lives and examine self-management strategies that minimize its negative impacts.
