“Technology is Making our Kids Stupid”, “We Now Have the Attention Spans of Goldfish”, “Mental Health Epidemic Caused by Social Media”, “Digital Platforms Cause Loneliness”, “Children as Young as Seven are Sexting”. These are familiar if rather sensationalist headlines. The media and researchers alike often adopt a negative rhetoric associated with digital device use, with particular focus on younger generations.
In this session:
Rachel Drinkwater is a senior business analyst and guest lecturer for Coventry University, a contributing writer for the British Computer Society and a freelance blogger who is fascinated by the effects of the digital world on society. In addition to working on designing and delivering innovative, engaging digital experiences for University staff and students, she writes about business analysis practice and the impact that the convergence of digital, business, technology and digital media has on society. She is also an actor and is on the Board of Directors of Teatro Theatre School, a charity who help disadvantaged young people build their confidence through the arts. In her spare time, she enjoys hiking around the English countryside, doing yoga, playing board games and going to gigs and festivals
