How Technology Is Warping Your Memory | The Creativity Post - 1 views

  • Last year at MIT, researchers identified a neural circuit that helps the brain to create long-lasting memories, and the circuit was found to work more effectively when the brain is actively paying attention to what it's looking at. Numerous studies have also found that when students multitask while doing schoolwork, they understand and retain less of the information.
  • The bottom line? If you lose the bigger story, you're likely lose the smaller details, too.
  • So-called "senior moments" are becoming increasingly common among younger people, recent data has found, and it's thought to be due, at least in part, to excessive reliance on technology. A 2013 Trending Machine national poll found that millennials (aged 18-34) are more likely than those over the age of 55 to forget what day it is (15 percent vs. 7 percent) and where they put their keys (14 percent vs. 8 percent). Gen-Yers even forget to take a shower (6 percent) more frequently than seniors. Rising stress levels (which may also have something to do with constant connectivity) could be a factor as well.

  • What many people don’t understand however is that it also threatens the uniquely American ideals of democracy and equality.
    • Laura Mortensen
      I think it's going a bit far to say this. 
  • If low-income students are unlucky enough to attend schools which can’t fund technology purchases, the chance that they’ll find a way out of a low income life becomes less likely.
  • When classrooms adopt iPads or other tablets in lower grades amongst younger students, the possibility that those students will be left behind in terms of the greater society decreases dramatically
  • ...2 more annotations...
  • If a student graduates high school without at least a rudimentary and working knowledge of new technologies, their future starts looking a lot less bright.
  • But increasingly, even menial entry level jobs require much more computer literacy than what some disadvantaged students are getting in schools.
