It’s time to talk! Take a look at this clip of a talk given at TED (promoting “ideas worth spreading”) in March 2012 by Sherry Turkle, psychologist, professor at MIT and author of “Alone Together: Why We Expect More From Technology And Less From Each Other.”
She is so right, without realising it we all are letting the technology world effect our behaviour and worse still we are allowing our children to be completely plugged in so they will loose what is vital to us all; the ability to understand what makes us human and how we are truly connected to the natural world we live in. In this clip Sherry powerfully shows us how we have become hooked without realising it and what the first steps we can do to control it rather than it control us.
The first step we would recommend is leave your phone behind, gather up your children and walk out the door for an exciting natural world adventure…. today, not tomorrow!
