Milken Institute Global Conference 2011 - The Attention Deficit Society: What Technology Is Doing to Our Brains

Milken Institute Global Conference 2011 - The Attention Deficit Society: What Technology Is Doing to Our Brains | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

A wonderful 90-minute video about how the internet is changing our brains!  Great info by great researches.

 

A few takeaways.

-Our brains reward us for multi-tasking

-the book was the first time to change our brain by 'causing' deep focus on an outside object (book, not internal)

OTHER NOTES:
-The Gorilla experiment

-the space in text allowed more people to read.

-Just because we grew up with the internet, it doesn't mean that the internet is grown up.

-college freshmen text instead of call those down the hall becuase of:

1) innefficiency.

immediatte, otherwise must move, wasteful social interchange, 'how are you'

2) always there. What if I walk to their room and they are not there. They feel that this failure was a 'rejection'. because they don't have social practice

3) Really resent need to pay attention. They would rather multitask.



Girls in deep talk...while multitasking. neither side saw wrong...both knew that they cared



-in past, the worst thing you could do was to ostricize. Today, you wouldn't even know if you were being ostricised.



'k' text respond.....because it is not ok to not respond



-If you don't teach kids/students/employees how to be alone, they will only know how to feel rejected.



-solitude is designed to restore.



8-12 years of age is crucial for girls in developing emotional and social practices. The best predicter of future success in these areas is in how much they talk, how much time they spend alone, and how they spend that time (positive or negative)





-LA "out the window" now on busses in LA to learn about people in LA. GEO location.instead of ads, people learn about the elders in their neighborhood.

Students learn history, technology, & connection,



-It is a mistake to put computers in teh school. It is not a mistake to teach teachers and students how to think through the use of technology in their lives.



-We don't allow students to use tools in the class in the same way that they use them in their real lives.



-professors not willing to let students use tech in the classroom in like Nixon in China

---we must be humble about tech



FUTURE FIXES

-Bosses will need to monitor how different employees react to digital interference



--HR departments must learn to allow flexibility....emailing at midnight allows 5 minutes of being late (in balance, if not abused)



-



-20 minute rule....if you can't do email for 20 minutes, than why do we do it so much.



-sacred space....do not have tech in dining room, not in bedroom. No cell phones at dinners



If you don't teach your kid how to be alone, he will only know how to feel lonely



--people used to walk nature trails while looking at trees. Now we do nature trails looking at our screens.

My 3 Take-aways
-Dorm students = cubicle workers not wanting to 'bother' others
-20 minutes of focus = multitaskers say email isn't worth 20 minutes, yet they check it all of the time
-parent's multitasking with tech and 'play dates' is setting bad examples for students
-9/11 was game changer for students psychological need for tech and connectiveness
-sacred space without tech access is crucial for all individuals. We need to make this a priority in parenting, teaching, and management
