Join us for the informative webinar Mindful Tech:  How to Bring Balance to Our Digital Lives

Today’s digital devices and apps are both powerful and powerfully distracting. Indeed it has become increasingly clear that they can serve both as instruments of learning and connection, on the one hand, and of distraction and disconnection, on the other. The challenge we face is to use them to their best advantage, and to ours, and to understand when to use them and when to abstain from them.

For a number of years, through his research and teaching, Dr. David Levy has been developing methods to help students (as well as faculty, staff, and adult professionals) investigate and improve their relationship with their digital devices and apps. In this webinar, Dr. Levy will present some of the contemplative exercises and methods used in his courses and seminars. He will also discuss the philosophy underlying them, which places the emphasis on student discoveries through mindful observation and reflection, rather than on general rules that everyone should, or must, obey.
