Learning & Memory In The Digital Age

January

16

Wednesday

Does it happen to you to check directions several times on your devices although you know where you are going? What's the first thing we do when you can't remember something? Google it, of course.

Our brain is undergoing a massive transformation as a result of internet penetration. We outsource our memory to Google, and are less and less able to concentrate on somethign for a long time (when was the last time you could read a book without being distracted?).

In this entertaining and interactive talk TEDx speaker, Huffington Post blogger, and author of Homo Distractus Dr Anastasia Dedyukhina explores, how internet is changing our brain, memory and learning and why our devices are so irresistible. She will explain, how memory works, discuss various memorization strategies, and provide you with the best strategies to stay focused and learn in the digital age and manage digital distractions. In this talk, you will learn how to take back control of your time and attention without getting rid of your tech.

Venue: Lighthouse
Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.

*Please see venue website for admission (age restrictions) or accessibility information. Our talks may be filmed for promotional purposes.
