Learning to use Digital Technologies More Attentively and with Less Stress
 

David Levy '71, Professor, The Information School, University of Washington

Part I: Wednesday, November 6, 7:15-8:45 pm

Part II: Thursday, November 7, 6:30-8:00 pm


Today’s digital technologies are both powerful and powerfully distracting. For more than a decade, through research and teaching, David Levy has been exploring how to help students and adult professionals train their attention in order to operate more effectively online and with less stress. In this workshop, Prof. Levy will introduce some simple “mindfulness” practices that can train us to be more relaxed and alert, and we will explore how these practices can be applied to email, Facebook, and multitasking.
